New mediation reforms to protect children

Separation and divorce cause the dividing of property, belongings and parental responsibility.  These scenarios can invariably lead to disputes in court. Because of the financial instability and the loss of the family unity, what children are experiencing or need iis often overlooked.

Exposure to these experiences lead to higher rates of anxiety, depression, and anti-social behaviour.  These emotions and behaviours can have a detrimental impact on a child’s schoolwork, their academic achievements, and their general mental health.
