A vast majority of people does not want to go to court, which is why mediation is a sensible, but also a more pragmatic solution. With it, any kind of dispute that affects a family can be settled. The same process actively encourages individuals and parties in the discussion to present their concerns in an open fashion. Because of this, there is no need for lawyers to intervene at any moment. This type of atmosphere is very useful for communication that precedes a mutually satisfying agreement. The openness and informality of the mediation are an essential reason why it became so popular and successful in resolving disputes.
Naturally, it is still necessary that any marital separation or a divorce are declared legal through a court process, but mediation has the ability to provide the most effective means of resolving any issue that appears between the partners. This agreement might concern property, financial disputes or child custody. Also, mediation is used for marriage and civil partnership that is about to be dissolved.
In the case you are a victim of any form of domestic violence, or if your property, you or your children are in danger, you are not obliged to attend Mediation Information and Assessment Information Meetings (MIAMS). Your case will be still heard in court, but the previous notion depends on the same court accepting this particular status. If the provided reason is deemed not adequate and the party skipped MIAMS meetings without any valid reason, the exemption will not apply.
