Family Mediation

GET IN TOUCH

If your relationship breaks down a swift and painless solution to the matters associated with the end of that relationship will enable you to move on with your life.

Mediation can be a sensible, efficient and cost-effective way to assist you to resolve a number of issues, including formalities regarding your separation (for example, who will divorce who), the financial arrangements and also arrangements for your children.

How mediation works and the benefits

  • A neutral third party helps you navigate and discuss matters together.
  • This means you and your former partner are the decision makers.
  • The process empowers you to work together to reach the best outcome for your and your family’s future.

Our mediators will assess whether mediation is a suitable process for you and, if so, will advise you how it will work and whether any other professionals should work alongside them – for example, financial advisers, pension experts and accountants. No case is too big to be considered in mediation.

How we have helped people by mediation

  • Neil has helped a number of couples who despite their divorce have wanted to continue working together so that their businesses could flourish. The constructive approach of mediation allowed this.
  • Neil has worked with couples who’s interests look beyond their own outcome and take into account other family members and future generations. Neil recently mediated an outcome for a farming family focusing on the future needs of the adult children as well as the divorcing couple. Working alongside lawyers and accountants a successful outcome was achieved for all.
  • Neil also mediates for couples who are in the court process but desperately want to avoid a final hearing. He recently helped settle a case by mediating directly with a  couple and their respective barristers. A whole day mediation avoided the cost and stress of a 2 day trial the following week.

Procedure

Since procedural changes were introduced in April 2011 we normally recommend that mediation begins by undertaking a mediation information and assessment meeting (MIAMs) the cost of which is £100 plus VAT for an individual appointment, or £150 plus VAT for a couple. If you proceed with mediation this will be refunded against your mediation costs.

If you need to have a MIAMs only, we will offer you an appointment within 48 hours.

Please complete either the Solicitor Referral Form or the Self Referral Form.
