Find out more about the family mediation process
Since April 2014, the law has changed to enforce a requirement for couples to seek mediation before applying to the court.
This means that if you are in dispute with your partner over a financial or custody matter in your separation you have to prove to the court that you have tried mediation as a first resort.
Couples are therefore now required to attend a MIAM – a mediation information and assessment meeting – to explore options.
At this meeting, you discuss with a mediator the way that mediation works and how it can help you with your settlement.
You will look together at your potential options and the cost of mediation.
A new way of thinking
Mediation services are provided by experienced experts who specialize in mediating family related disputes.
The process is usually reserved for the most complex and involved of family matters and includes the involvement of family members and witnesses to the dispute.
Family members will usually be called upon to represent themselves during a mediation session. This process involves providing the other party with written documents such as statements and testimony, and will also involve negotiations regarding the other party’s share of the budget and custody and visitation schedules.
These are all mandatory steps taken by the court when it allows a mediation service to intervene in the case. Mediation sessions can be brief or long depending on the length of the case and the issues involved.When family members are ready to mediate their own case they should contact us who specializes in this type of mediation service.Its very cost effective for family members compared to the court process and the sucess rate is high especially for child support when family realtionships break down.
In many cases, courts will not allow a family member to take on a case without the assistance of a professional mediator first.This is due to the sensitive nature of the case and the need for confidentiality in order to avoid any potential embarrassment for the family members involved. This allows them to continue with their lives and the cases that are presented by the other party.
The mediator, or neutral party, will then conduct interviews with each party’s witnesses and gather important documentation regarding the case in order to assist the court in reaching a fair and appropriate decision.
A meeting is held in which the mediator will attempt to reconcile the differences between the parties. The result of this decision will either approve the mediation services or reject the mediation services.
