Do I still need a Solicitor if I come to Mediation?

Not necessarily, however legal advice can still be a very important part of the process of divorce or separation and the mediator will always recommend that before proposals are documented the parties each receive independent legal advice. The Mediator will be able to provide the individuals with information as to the legal process and the factors that they should be giving regard to, however the Mediator will not personally advise the individuals.
