Our Mediation Services
The first stage in family mediation is the MIAM. This is the first meeting that you have with a mediator. The four letter stands for Mediation Information & Assessment Meeting. It is important to note that your former partner does not attend this meeting with you. This meeting can be done using Skype, FaceTime, or WhatsApp, which is easy to do, even if you are not a techie person! In this first meeting, you will have the opportunity to find out from a qualified family mediator how mediation works and the potential benefits. The mediator will also make an assessment as to whether mediation is appropriate for your personal situation. If mediation is not an option, the mediator is able to sign the appropriate court forms.
Legal Aid MIAM
Legal Aid is often available to those who are on a low income or on specific benefits, such as Universal Credit. To see if you qualify, speak to one of our team and ask for a free Legal Aid assessment. If you make a successful Legal Aid application, it will pay for your MIAM and mediation sessions going forward. In addition to this, it will also pay for the MIAM and first joint mediation session with your ex-partner. BOOK NOW
