Comments left by previous clients:

When it came to the day of mediation, I felt understood, confident and as if the outcome would be positive. Without their help in preparing me for the mediation, I don’t feel the outcome would have been as positive as it was.

FAQs

 

‘‘What is Family Mediation?’

Family Mediation is an impartial process that allows ex-partners or separating partners the opportunity to speak about arrangements for children, finances, assets and a range of family issues in an environment that is safe. The process can also be used for grandparents and step-families. The mediator is non-judgemental and will at all times remain impartial and will give no advice, allowing those who come to mediation control of the decisions that they make. Mediators can provide information and if the mediation involves children the mediator will ensure that outcomes work best for the children.

“What qualifications do family mediators have?’’

All family mediators attend mediation foundation training before taking the family specialism. You then have to build a thorough portfolio, which includes shadowing other family practitioners, observations and a thorough competency framework as well as exams. All family mediators should be registered with the Family Mediation Council, which accredits you in carrying out family mediation. There is also a considerable amount of ongoing training to keep your family mediation accreditation.

 

“Can I bring a solicitor?’’

In family mediation we do encourage individuals to receive legal advice, if this makes them feel more comfortable. Solicitors however are not to attend MIAMs or joint mediation sessions.

Centre for Resolution’s Family Mediators are regulated by the College of Mediators & the Family Mediation Council.

A lot of our clients have questions before they use our family mediation service, so here is some more information you may find useful.

 

Your first meeting is known as a MIAM (mediation information assessment meeting). Ex partners do not usually attend this meeting together. This meeting gives you the opportunity to ask questions and also for you and the mediator to see if this process is suitable. If mediation is the right process for you then the mediator will contact your ex partner by letter in which they will have 7 days to respond. If they wish to come to mediation they will also attend a MIAM. If both people decide to go forward we will arrange a time and date that is suitable for both of you to attend your mediation meeting. The mediator will ensure that you both have equal amounts of time to speak, air your concerns and to work together to find solutions.

The mediation process is voluntary meaning that no one is forced to be there. It is 100% confidential so participants can feel confident that their discussions are private. The only exceptions to this is risk of harm or admissions of criminal activity. It is an impartial process meaning the mediator doesn’t take sides and is self determined meaning that the decisions you make are decisions and choices that you make together, giving you control of the situation.
