Trusted Family Mediation Services across the UK

Where disputes end and conversations start...

What is Family Mediation?

Family mediation is a voluntary process which allows separating or divorced couples to sit together around a table and have a discussion – not an argument – in a safe, controlled, professional environment.

At Crowther Mediation, you can be assured that your experienced mediator will help you navigate through difficult issues to make arrangements for your future.  Mediation is completely impartial and whilst we might ask you to consider some of the options a court would look at, we are not here to make the decisions about your future.

Family Mediation Process

How long does family mediation take?

Mediation takes place over 2-3 sessions, with each session lasting approximately 90 mins.

What happens during Family Mediation?

During the sessions you and your former partner will be asked to explore all of the options available to resolve the issues you have.

Is Family Mediation legally binding?

Mediation is not a substitute for legal advice and you are encouraged to have some independent legal advice to help you consider the options available.

Is Family Mediation confidential?

Mediation is a confidential process which means you can feel free to discuss and explore all options safe in the knowledge that if mediation does not work, the court are not entitled to hear about your discussions, which may prejudice your case.

Apply for Family Mediation: MIAMS

Any party wishing to engage in the mediation process must first of all attend a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting. This meeting allows one of our mediators to explain a little bit more about mediation on a one to one basis and establish the nature of the dispute, before deciding whether not mediation is appropriate.

It is essential to attend a MIAM before making an application to court. The mediator needs endorse court application forms to confirm attendance at a MIAM.
