three steps to mediation with UK Family Plymouth

We Will Help You Every Step Of The Way

If you are going through the divorce process, a family mediator can offer practical steps to resolution

UK Family Mediation Services & Online Mediation


Book your MIAM

The mediation process begins with a Mediation Information Assessment Meeting (MIAM), where you meet with a trained mediator to discuss your situation. This initial meeting is crucial for understanding how mediation works and assessing whether it’s suitable for your needs. During the MIAM, you’ll receive information about the costs involved in mediation, including any potential legal fees and court costs associated with divorce proceedings


Mediation & Agreement

Once you decide to proceed with mediation, you’ll work closely with a family mediator registered with the Family Mediation Council (FMC). The mediator facilitates discussions between you and your ex-partner in separate rooms, ensuring a safe and constructive environment. Together, you’ll address issues such as child arrangements, financial contributions, and practical steps for moving forward. The goal is to reach a mutually acceptable agreement that benefits both parties and any children involved. This agreement is documented in a legally binding format known as a consent order, which outlines the responsibilities and commitments of each party.


Resolution & Closure

As mediation progresses, you’ll work towards finalising a memorandum of understanding that captures all agreed-upon terms. This document provides clarity on roles and responsibilities moving forward, ensuring that both parties understand and adhere to the terms of the agreement. Once mediation concludes, you may choose to explore additional support options, such as relationship counselling or collaborative law,  or to strengthen ongoing communication and cooperation. 

UK Family Mediation Services provide a cost-effective and informal solution for couples who are looking to resolve conflicts within their family, such as divorce or separation.

Mediation enables both parties to reach an agreement in a safe and respectful environment, which can avoid contentious legal proceedings.

It also allows couples to focus on the best interests of any children involved, by providing them with a healthy environment in which to discuss potential solutions.

Additionally, family mediation can help couples to remain in control of the outcome of their situation by coming up with a plan that suits everyone’s needs.
