Helping families in Surrey
A family upheaval of any kind can be an extremely traumatic experience for everyone involved. This can be more pronounced when children are included especially if the dispute concerns the separation or divorce of their parents.
At the National Family Mediation Service Surrey we are sensitive to the needs of all participants and family members. It is however not our place to cast judgements over who is right or wrong in any dispute.
Nevertheless the mediator is trained to act sympathetically and with complete impartiality so that the best practicable solution can be reached quickly and with the least stress.
Our mediation services in Guildford, Surrey provide a less formal, much cheaper alternative to resolving a family dispute in court. Nobody wants to go to court – so mediation can be seen as a sensible and more efficient way of settling various kinds of disputes that are likely to affect families.
Because mediation encourages each individual involved to discuss their concerns openly without the need for lawyers to intervene, it is an extremely beneficial way for the parties to communicate and to reach agreement. The informality and openness of mediation is fundamentally why mediation has become a successful and popular way of resolving disputes.
It is still of course necessary for a divorce or marital separation to be made legal through the court process, but mediation has proved to be the most efficient means of settling relating issues that evolve.

Mediation assessment meeting GUILDFORD (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.Google Map – https://plus.google.com/101424109869042927088/posts
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.
