If you've got a difficult subject that you need to discuss with someone such as an ex-partner or estranged member of the family, I can assist you by providing a neutral place to meet and by supporting those discussions so that you can then find your own workable solutions to issues such as finance, property and the children.
I don't take sides and I don't make judgements but I will ensure that you make informed decisions and that all your concerns are addressed. At the conclusion of mediation I will formally record your agreement which you have the option of making legally binding.
Typically, children's issues require one to two joint sessions, property and finance may be up to four joint sessions, at 90mins per session. I am also qualified to offer Child Consultation so that if your child/children choose (like you) to take part in mediation I should be very happy to work with them.
The National Audit Office state that mediation can be as little as a third of the time and cost that arbitration incurs, and has been proven to not only reduce the stress and conflict betweeen the two parties but it ensures that the ongoing parental co-operation is far longer lasting.
Mediation Information and Assessment Meetings (MIAM) for Family Court Proceedings.
If you are filing a family matter to the Court, a mediation assessment meeting must have been attended as part of the pre-action protocol; then if there is no prospect of mediation going ahead I can sign the necessary form for you. As a Legal Aid Agency recognised mediator, I will also be able to tell you if you are eligible for legal aid, and if so, mediation would be free of charge.
Fees for private clients, per person, are as follows:
|Child only issues||£90||90 mins|
|Property and Finance issues||£120||90 mins|
|Property, Finance and Children||£150||90 mins|
On a final note, you might like to know that I am a member of National Family Mediation and am accredited by the Family Mediation Council. As with my colleagues, this service and your time spent with me is strictly confidential. If you would like an assessment meeting to look at your options and to see what you need to do next, please call on our main number and I shall be very happy to help.
