‘Prevention is better than cure’ outlines the benefits of mediation for people who are hoping to start their families in a co-parenting arrangement or to conceive with the help of a sperm donor. The article highlights the unique issues which parents contemplating such arrangements need to consider, and looks at what lessons might be learned in light of a recent family law case involving parties with mis-matched expectations as to a sperm donor’s involvement in a child’s life. Suzi looks at how mediation might help parents to discuss tricky and sensitive issues before they start their families, and prevent potential conflict from arising in the future.
