Settlement Facilitation is a mediation process during which the Facilitator helps parties represented by legal counsel reach a full agreement. The standard process includes both spouses and attorneys attending a mediation session (sometimes called facilitation) at the Settlement Facilitator’s office for either a full or half day.


Prior to the facilitation day, the attorneys outline for the Facilitator what issues have been agreed upon and which issues are still in dispute. Each attorney states their client’s “legal position” on the disputed areas and the Mediator/Facilitator then works with both sides to determine the best path to agreement.

These mediations are often successful when both attorneys and clients are well prepared and each side has had access to all relevant information.

The attorneys at Batley Family Law are well experienced in the broad range of family law legal issues that may arise in a divorce case. Their extensive experience with settlement facilitations, combined with skillful collaborative techniques provide added strength to their facilitation services.
