Divorce Mediation

Divorce mediation guides a couple through the complex procedure of divorce whereby Law for Women mediates over a divorce process, working for both parties.

Mediation provides trained guidance with decisions about dividing assets fairly, and if children are involved, a parenting plan, which involves visitation and child support.

Law for Women specializes in mediating divorce and family issues. Under founding member, Trixi Neethling, there is a team of diverse professionals from different cultural and religious background, able to handle every aspect of a divorce.

“We are parents ourselves. We understand the complicated emotions and sadness of a family breakdown. We believe in dissolving a marriage in ways that empower both parties, giving husband and wife more control over the outcome.

“Parents divorce each other. They don’t divorce their children”, says Trixi Neethling.

What is Divorce Mediation?

Divorce mediation is an objective process of dissolving a marriage or partnership in a reconciliatory way, helping clients to reach a settlement which suits both parties.

Law for Women’s main objective is to minimize the damage resulting from a divorce and keep the family unit as unscarred as possible. A couple is guided in a fair and objective manner to structure a settlement agreement.

Law for Women provides the complete service from mediation to finalizing the divorce.

We do not want families to dissolve to the point where children become innocent victims in a tug-of-war. We guide a couple through the complex process of making the decisions regarding the division of assets, custody and visitation and child support.

In this way, the spouses are empowered, having arrived at their own outcome rather than relying on the court to make the decisions for them.

How Does Divorce Mediation Work?

In divorce mediation, a trained mediator facilitates the couples divorce in a fair, impartial and constructive manner by providing all the necessary information, both legally and emotionally, so both parties can make informed decisions agreeably regarding their children, finances, and living arrangements.
