The law has changed, and you are now legally required to consider mediation before applying to the family court to resolve a dispute about your children or finances. This means that before submitting your application, you must attend a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting (MIAM)

Legal Minded Friends Clients will receive a £25 discount off the initial meeting fees when attending UK Family Mediation Services.

UK Family Mediation Services are a National Service. Going to mediation will also benefit if you are going through separation related problems, your mediator will not make the decisions, but he/she will help you to come to agreements, focusing on understanding your family and your needs for now and in the future. They will discuss the best solution for both you and your ex/ partner, if you have children, their interest will be paramount in line with how the courts would make decisions.

Legal Minded Friends, will be able to draft an agreed consent once you have come to an agreement so that you can avoid lengthy court hearings and high solicitor bills.

Mediation is confidential, it gives room for the both of you to arrive at resolution depending on your own ideas that are fair in your situation and therefore decisions are not forced on you. Mediation is much less expensive than paying high solicitor fees to settle your differences.
