EU Mediation Regulations now law in Ireland
On the 5th May 2011 with very little publicity the Minister for Justice and Equality, Mr Alan Shatter signed new regulations, SI No. 209 of 2011 European Communities Mediation Regulations 2011, into Law.
Mediation is now firmly on the radar of the government and will be a major consideration in any commercial, civil or family dispute.
Difficult decisions pushing families toward Elder Care Mediation
As people age, financial planning can take on new levels of complexity. On top of the usual questions about managing assets, families may have to decide who will control the purse strings, and when. That, in turn, could determine where a person will live and how well.
Even a basic decision can mean a lot of questions. Say the parent needs to move out of the home. Will the house be sold and who makes that decision?. Those questions are giving rise to the practice of elder care mediation.
