For many clients mediation is a helpful way to resolve disputes. However, mediators will not provide legal advice. At Clifton Ingram, although we do not provide mediation services, we fully support mediation as a means of dispute resolution and are able to provide legal support during that process.
If there is no option but to issue court proceedings, over property or arrangements for children, you are first required to attend a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting “MIAM” (you may be exempt from a MIAM if you are the victim of domestic violence or your case involves bankruptcy).
At such a meeting the mediator will assess if mediation can help you to reach an agreement. During the meeting couples are able to find out more about mediation and ask any questions that they may have for the mediator. Individuals can attend the “MIAM” alone or with their partner. If you meet the mediator alone, the mediator will ask if they may contact the other party. If the mediator ascertains that the partner does not wish to mediate, then mediation will not go ahead.
