Mediation assessment meeting Reigate (MIAMS)

It used to be the case that mediation was seen as an optional extra in a divorce case. However, that is not true any longer. You will now have to attend special meetings under a new provision of the Children and Families Act, 2014, which came into force much earlier this year.

The implications of this law are now being felt in the courts, and most importantly by mediation services, which have seen an increase in demand. The changes to this law now make it absolutely a certainty that you will have to attend MIAMS (Mediation and Assessment Meetings) preceding the progression of a divorce to the law courts (that is, if you have no special mitigating circumstances).

This change is now in full effect, and you should seek advice before going ahead with any legal arrangements.
