Barclay DeVere Family Mediation Service Swindon
Mediation is designed to minimise the emotional or material consequences of any family dispute. We are associated with many mediation specialists in the Swindon area.
A family is a close knit unit, and any form of upheaval; a separation or divorce, a bereavement and its legal consequences, including wills, can disrupt its equilibrium, create trauma for those who are vulnerable, and lead to valuable relationships, being lost. A mediation service seeks to protect this.
Accessing family mediation Swindon via Barclay Devere will equip you with a service that is measured, professional and impartial.
Mediation can help resolve legal disagreements quickly and cheaply, without going to court.
Mediation is a face-to-face meeting between the clients and a professional mediator. The mediator’s role is to encourage clients to talk together and find a solution.

MIAMS and Mediation
AS of April 1st 2014, the law changed regarding the solving of disputes and how they are managed. Before, and if a dispute does go to court, a judge must see that both parties have taken part in a MIAMS mediation meeting. Essentially, the meeting allows both sides the opportunity to air their opinions in a constructive, open and structured environment. Both parties must feel as though they are being listened to in order for the dispute to come to a suitable resolution.
However, if the dispute cannot be resolved then legal proceedings may be the next logical course of action.
