Manchester and Cheshire Mediation was originally founded by Monica Garvey and Nia Hope. Both are highly experienced family mediators, having mediated for in excess of 27 years. Monica was a CAFCASS Officer / Children’s Guardian and Nia was a Matrimonial Solicitor. Their, and their team’s, experience is wide ranging, from very high profile/net worth cases to entrenched court/Social Services referred disputes, including multiparty mediations and cases involving independent experts. Both are trained in Direct Consultation with Children, enabling them to involve the child in the mediation process, if appropriate.
At Manchester and Cheshire Mediation we specialise in cases where there are issues resulting from the breakdown of a relationship, whether that is husband/wife, cohabitees, same sex relationships, grandparents/parents or siblings. We help clients to work out a range of practical issues, for example; arrangements for children such as where they will reside and who they will have contact with how clients can work together as separated parents sorting out finances such as the house, savings, investments, debts, pensions, maintenance, contents of the house etc negotiating inheritance/probate disputes
Here at Manchester and Cheshire Mediation we try where possible to tailor the specialisms and expertise of the mediator to those of our clients.
