Family mediation helps those involved in divorce or separation to communicate better with one another and reach their own decisions about all or some of the issues arising from separation, divorce or ending of a civil partnership, including children, property and financial issues. Mediation allows you to directly negotiate your own decisions with the help of a family mediator. It is an alternative to lawyers negotiating for you or having decisions made for you by the Courts. Participation in mediation is voluntary although it is now a requirement that before any application is made to a Court concerning finances or children following the breakdown of a marriage, civil partnership or relationship, the person making the application must attend a mediation information session’ or ‘assessment meeting’ in order to find out about the option of resolving matters through mediation.
We are pleased to announce that we now are able to conduct mediations from any of our three offices situated at Huntingdon, St Ives and St Neots. Our mediator, Lee Bailham, is an ADR qualified family law mediator and a solicitor. Lee is also an approved mediator able to carry out MIAMS which are required if a person is contemplating Court proceedings relating to children and/or financial issues following the breakdown of their marriage or relationship.
