How does financial mediation work?

We follow a set process of mediation, that is approved by the Family Mediation Council:

  • We hold an initial online meeting with you individually – this is also called a MIAM

  • We write to the other potential participant inviting them to a MIAM

  • As long as you attend your individual MIAM, we can release the court form to enable you to start a court application should mediation not be suitable

  • If the other potential participant responds we set up their MIAM and assess suitability

  • Once everyone is happy to mediate, we arrange your first joint mediation meeting

  • We can cover parenting, property and finances on divorce or separation and can easily share important documents and disclosure during the meetings

  • Once agreement is reached we prepare summaries for approval and digital signature

"Extremely impressed with this service, a little skeptical at first when referred by solicitor but I can honestly say everything was fully explained to me at my first appointment, I was allowed to ask lots of questions, share my concerns and was given full and honest responses to this.

 

I felt reassured that this was a fair process and completely understood what would occur. I have found the administrative team as helpful and professional as the mediator himself. I would have no hesitation in recommending this practice."
