MIAM – The first step in the process is to attend a separate, confidential MIAM (Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting).  This is to enable the mediator to find out about your situation, to assess suitability for mediation and for you to find out about the mediation process and alternative ways forward. If you would like to proceed and the mediator assesses your case as suitable we will then contact your second party to invite them to a separate MIAM.

Mediation for child arrangements- Family mediation can help you sort out a wide range of practical issues in relation to making child arrangements after separation.  We can help you find a way forward that works for you as parents and which focuses on the best interests of the children.

Child inclusive mediation - We can offer child-inclusive mediation, where suitable, with a specially trained family mediator. This will be subject to safeguarding to ensure that both parents are fully aware of the implications of including children in the process, the reason and purpose. Including children in Family Mediation gives them a chance to feel that their voices are being heard, and a way of exploring their thoughts and concerns.

Mediation for financial arrangements - Family mediation is a future focused process and one that encourages a practical and cost effective approach to sorting out financial issues. Whether your assets include a family home, pensions and businesses, our accredited family mediators will help you to consider the full range of options, mindful of the legal factors which need to be taken into account in settlement discussions.
