Family Mediation Solicitors
Our dedicated specialist Family Mediation Service helps couples who wish to reach their own agreements in a neutral environment and without recourse to the court.
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.
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
We are able to arrange mediation appointments in the following locations:
