What is Mediation ?
MIAMS / FM1
The government considered that this would be cheaper for families and also would be easier. The law changed again in 2014 which made MIAMS, in the majority of cases, a statutory obligation before you attend court. There are, however, exceptions to this rule which we can inform you about. We must stress that such exceptions are rare.
There are legal costs that will accrue as a case progresses, and what seems initially very reasonable can be very expensive when it comes to the end of the case. There is no ceiling to legal costs.
With mediation, however, costs are very manageable, lower in comparision to Solicitor cost and you pay as you along so no big bills mounting!.
These costs start from £99 which will cover a basic mediation service and your assessment. In addition, you will know exactly how much mediation will come to when you sign up for the service. Of course, we also offer more extensive mediation packages but we can guarantee that these costs will be exactly what we quote.
This does not mean that our service is ‘on the cheap’, rather our mediators are fully trained, experienced, and have the empathy required to talk through all of the aspects of your divorce. You will find that with mediation there is a lot more money which is left over for the essentials of life. This means that your divorce, or separation, will be a lot less onerous in terms of financial consequences for your children.
