Family Mediation

Family mediation

Family Mediators help couples or other family members where relationships have broken down, to reach joint decisions about one or more matters relating to children, finance and property.

Attending the Assessment Meeting or (MIAM)

The first step is to attend a meeting with one of our mediators so you can find out more about mediation and if it’s right for you. This is generally called a ‘Mediation Information & Assessment Meeting’ (MIAM) or ‘Assessment meeting’.
