    Family Mediation
    Family Mediation is a way of helping you to reach agreements with your ex-partner when you are separating and/or divorcing.

    What is Family Mediation?

    Family Mediation is a way of helping you to reach agreements with your ex-partner when you are separating and/or divorcing.

    Family mediation is an increasingly popular alternative to asking the court to make decisions about your family – it works by helping you to find practical solutions that feel fair.

    Why choose Family Mediation?

    Family mediation isn’t about getting back together; it gives you the opportunity to talk directly to each other with the help and guidance of a trained professional to work out the issues that matter most to you both arising from your separation. These may be around children, finances and property and/or communication.

    Family Mediation is:

    Family Mediation is NOT:

    How does Family Mediation work?

    The first step is to attend a meeting with one of our mediators on your own. In this meeting:

    This is called a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting (MIAM).

    Mediation then takes place over 2-4 sessions, depending on your circumstances. During the sessions, you and your former partner will be asked to explore all of the options available to resolve the issues you have.

    Mediation is not a substitute for legal advice and we will help you to understand the points where independent legal advice is advisable.

    Mediation is a confidential process which means you can feel free to discuss and explore all options, safe in the knowledge that if mediation does not work, any discussions cannot be disclosed in court, which may prejudice your case.

    What can Family Mediation help with?

    Here are some examples:

    Professional, accredited, and fully insured, the family mediator will listen to you and your ex-partner explain your concerns and views to each other and will help you both work towards an agreement that you feel is fair.

    What is the cost?

    We offer private and Legal Aid appointments.

    To find out if you’re eligible for Legal Aid, please have a look at this link: https://www.gov.uk/check-legal-aid. If you are eligible, all your costs for mediation will be covered (NB. this is a different, and often more flexible and beneficial assessment than applying for mediation for court purposes).

    For private clients, our full cost details can be found at https://brightmediationuk.co.uk/pricing/. But in summary, we charge £99 for the initial, individual and confidential meeting (the MIAM), and then a fee of £120 per hour per person for the joint mediation sessions. We will give you a clear outline of the total expected costs at the MIAM.
