When relationships break down there are many practical and emotional issues to deal with like:

  • What will happen to the house?
  • Where will everyone live?
  • How to separate finances and assets?
  • Maintenance both spousal and child?
  • How will the children cope?
  • What about contact and child care arrangements?

And our experienced team of Family Mediators have expertise assisting people when they need help separating their properties and finances and making arrangements for the children.

Family Mediation can help people manage these issues privately and confidentially. Family Mediation is considerably less expensive and less time consuming than contested lengthy court proceedings and is now the most widely used process for people wanting to resolve their issues.  

Family Mediation is a voluntary process so no person is forced to mediate if they do not want to although all people applying to a court for financial relief or child arrangements must attend a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting (MIAM) first. A MIAM will last for approximately 45-minutes at the end of which either a mediation will take place or the relevant court application form will be signed off by our mediators [£20 fee applies for all court application forms completed].

A typical all issue Family Mediation which includes matters of property, finance and child contact arrangements will have anything from 1 to 6 mediations.

A property and finance only Family Mediation will normally take place over 1-4 mediations whilst a Child only Family Mediation will normally be 1-2 mediations.

Family Mediation sessions last between 1 to 1.5-hours per session with mediation sessions taking place every 3 or 4 weeks.
