At the National Family Mediation Service Bristol we are sensitive to the needs of all participants. It is however not our place to cast judgments over who is right or wrong in any dispute.
Mediation is a widely accepted alternative to litigation in areas where there is a possibility of a dispute that can’t be resolved through the civil process. In the United Kingdom, legal representatives must give advance notice of a possible hearing before the case is scheduled, although this requirement may vary from county to county. Mediation involves the voluntary and unbiased participation of attorneys and other parties in an attempt to determine the most appropriate resolution to the dispute.
The two parties agree on a resolution; mediation then proceeds to the litigation stage. In Bristol, mediation is usually conducted by two neutral mediators; this is a much faster process than litigation. Lawyers and mediators often agree to the mediation and never go to court if they are satisfied that both sides are comfortable with the process. It is rare for a party to withdraw from the mediation if they decide that it will not resolve their issue.

Mediation assessment meeting Bristol (MIAMS)
It is very important that if you are getting divorced that you are fully appraised of changes to the law. A very significant change happened earlier this year that you should be aware of.
An alteration to the Child and Families Act of 2014 means that you now must undertake mediation, and have evidence of attending MIAMS (Mediation Information and Assessment meetings) if you want to go to court to proceed with your divorce.
This is a statutory change and there are very few ways that you can get out of attending this sort of meeting. Of course, you should always undertake specialist guidance before making a decision.
