Introducing the MIAM (Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting)

Introducing the MIAM (Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting)

If you are in dispute with your spouse or former partner, or are having difficulties settling your separation, you may be thinking about court proceedings.

But before an application can be made to court, you are now required to attend a Mediation Information Assessment Meeting (MIAM). The aim of the meeting is to see if mediation could be used to resolve your difficulties, rather than going straight to court.

Courts are required to know that mediation has been considered before they are able to proceed with your application.

At Leeds Day, we now offer MIAMs to separating couples.  Lee Bailham is an ADR qualified mediator and a highly experienced family solicitor.  He is able to undertake all types of family law mediations as well as MIAMs.  We can provide this service at any of our three offices situated at Huntingdon, St Neots or St Ives.

To find out more, contact the family team at Leeds Day on 0844 567 2222, send an email to or visit our website:
