If you think you would like to consider family mediation as a way of resolving issues with your former partner, you can arrange to see a family mediator for a MIAM (Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting).
A MIAM is a meeting with a family mediator which lasts for up to 45 minutes. You can explain your situation and the mediator will work out with you whether mediation is suitable and safe. A MIAM can be arranged either as a one to one meeting with mediator or jointly involving you, your former partner and the mediator.
At the end of this session if you want to proceed, and the mediator agrees it is suitable, we will try and contact the other party and invite him or her to come in for a MIAM, if a joint MIAM has not taken place. If you both wish to proceed, we will then arrange joint mediation session. If the other party does not respond or does not wish to mediate, we can sign the form/s you need for court.
In mediation sessions you will sit down in a room with the other party (or separate rooms of required) with our family mediator. The mediator will help you to discuss arrangements for children and/or property or finances. You will both have a chance to speak and be heard and express your wishes and feelings. The mediator is completely independent.
Where you reach an agreement, the mediator will record this and write up this up, this document is known as a Memorandum of Understanding. It may take more than one mediation session to reach agreement depending on your situation
For agreements on property and/or financial matters a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) can provided. This is not a legally binding document, but you can seek legal advice about going to court to make it legally binding.
