When a loved one dies, as well as the trauma of loss, people may have to cope with arguments over the will and who inherits what. This can have devastating impacts on relationships, impacts which can last years or even a whole lifetime. Mediation can help avoid this devastation.
Our experienced mediators can help with:
- Inheritance Act disputes
- Contested probate
- Disputes between Executors
Mediation is usually less stressful, quicker and much cheaper than going to court. Most importantly, mediation can help people manage the emotions associated with conflict after someone has died and help reduce levels of animosity in the long-term.
Mediators manage the discussions and remain impartial throughout, not taking sides with anyone. They run the meetings to make sure that everyone is able to air their points of view and explore the options for achieving a satisfactory settlement. It is the people involved who make the decisions, not the mediator – their role is to help the process along towards agreement. Enabling people to feel heard is a big part of moving towards an agreement.
