What is Mediation and why do I need it?
Mediation helps you reach decisions about things that are important for you and your family. It helps you to find a way to plan for the future whether that be about children and/ or money/ property and to agree what will work best for you without having to go to court. Mediation can save you time, money and stress. Also, from April 2014 , before an application is made to a family court for Children or Financial matters, you are now required to attend a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting (MIAM) unless exempt from doing so.
