Courts are increasingly referring parties involved in legal proceedings to mediators to resolve disputes. However, even without being initiated by a legal procedure, mediation can be a suitable way to resolve a conflict. In fact, with mediation the legal procedure can be avoided entirely. Mediation is a form of conflict resolution, in which a decision is not imposed from above, as in the case of a decision made by a judge. In mediation, the parties themselves work on resolving a dispute. The mediator guides and assists the parties in finding a solution by initiating and monitoring discussions and negotiations between the parties. For the mediation to be successful, the expertise and neutrality of the mediator is an obvious factor that is of the utmost importance.
Henri Wolters is an experienced mediator. He is certified by the Mediatorsfederatie Nederland (the Netherlands federation of mediators, MfN) and is regularly commissioned by the court for mediations.
Henri is also a mediator at NollenKneepkens ADR/mediation in Maastricht (see www.nollenkneepkens.nl).
Divorce mediation is a specialized field of mediation. Divorce is a sensitive matter that often involves very intense emotions. Threats of legal actions and translating emotions into legal rights and obligations often leads to stalemate. Parties are no longer 'on speaking terms', while consultation is necessary to overcome the differences of opinion.
Divorce mediation is a tried and tested method for solving relational crises and the result is often more satisfactory than the decision imposed by a judge.
Henri Wolters and Janneke Laumans, both specialized divorce mediators, can work for and with you.
