Book your MIAM

The mediation process begins with a Mediation Information Assessment Meeting (MIAM), where you meet with a trained mediator to discuss your situation and receive general information about mediation. This initial meeting is crucial for understanding how your mediation sessions will work and assessing whether it’s suitable for your needs. During the MIAM, you’ll receive information about the costs involved in mediation, including any potential legal fees and court costs associated with divorce proceedings. Book your MIAM today with our MIAMS Mediator to learn more about the benefits of mediation for your family.


Mediation & Agreement

Once you decide to proceed with mediation in your current situation, you’ll work closely with our qualified family mediators who are  registered with the Family Mediation Council (FMC). The experienced family mediator shuttles between you and facilitates discussions between you and your ex-partner in separate rooms to ensure a safe  environment for both parties. Together, you’ll address issues such as child disputes and child arrangements, financial contributions, and practical steps for moving forward. The goal is to reach a mutually acceptable agreement that benefits both parties and gives minimal impact to any children involved. This agreement is documented in a legally binding format known as a consent order, which outlines the responsibilities and commitments of each party.


Resolution & Closure

As mediation progresses, you’ll work towards finalising a memorandum of understanding that captures all agreed-upon terms. This document provides clarity on roles and responsibilities moving forward, ensuring that both parties understand and adhere to the terms of the agreement. Once mediation concludes, you may choose to explore additional support options, such as legal advice, relationship counselling, or collaborative law, or to strengthen ongoing communication and cooperation. 

UK Family Mediation Services provide a cost-effective, confidential process and an informal solution when you and your former partner  are looking to resolve conflicts within the family during significant changes such as divorcing or separation.

The goals of mediation are to enable both parties to reach an agreement in a safe and respectful environment, which can avoid contentious legal proceedings.

It also allows couples to focus on the welfare of the children involved, by providing them with a healthy environment in which to discuss potential solutions. Child inclusive mediation is also an option; speak to our team to learn more.
