Family Mediation

Wace Morgan Family Mediation Service has been running since 1996.

WMFMS3

Mediation is an opportunity to make family arrangements without involving the court. As from 22nd April 2014, it is necessary to attend a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting (MIAM) before making an application to the court about children or finances. Our local courts expect both applicants and respondents to attend a MIAM, if possible before going to court, and they are likely to adjourn matters if no MIAM has been attended.

We can mediate with many different types of clients on issues concerning children or finances:-

  • Married or cohabiting couples who are separating or divorcing
  • Civil partners or same-sex couples who are separating
  • Grandparents who wish to arrange contact with their grandchildren
  • Former partners who wish to reconsider arrangements for their children or financial support
  • Couples who are considering separation and wish to agree arrangements in advance
  • Couples who are intending living together or marrying and wish to avoid future disputes

 

In the breakdown of a relationship conflict may be inevitable – but wasting time and money is not. Conflict only adds to the misery of the breakdown of a relationship. Finding solutions together to the issues will lessen the misery and help you both look to a more positive future. Mediation is confidential and can provide the most economical and effective solutions to your dispute.

We are able to arrange appointments in Shrewsbury, Oswestry, Welshpool, Newtown, Telford and Church Stretton. We are also able to offer appointments in Cannock and Stafford through our colleagues at Family Mediation Centre Staffordshire.

We have a contract with the Legal Aid Agency to provide mediation with the benefit of legal aid. Our brochure, our leaflet about our fees and legal aid and our leaflet about our assessment meetings can be accessed here:
