What is my mediators role

Your mediator’s role is to guide you through the process of settling practical issues with your partner. They will help you and your partner ‘unpick’ your situation, provide information about legal principles, and explain some of the things you should be thinking about when resolving your issues.

The mediator doesn’t ever make any decisions for you; they remain impartial and will never take sides or encourage you to take a specific course of action.
