The advantages of family mediation
Family breakups and divorces can be an extremely traumatic experience for everyone involved.
If children are involved, the situation can get messy very quickly and have a long-lasting damaging effect.
Even when the divorce, separation or break-up is mutual, there are many aspects to negotiate and consider, from the division of assets to custody of children.
The very discussion of these issues can lead to a breakdown in communication, which makes an already difficult transition even more traumatic.
This is why, in April 2011, the Ministry of Justice ruled that all parties considering any kind of separation or divorce must undertake mediation sessions before the case reaches the court.
Also termed ‘Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting’, or MIAM, this measure aims at getting the parties to agree to an out of court settlement that is unanimous and to everyone’s benefit.
If an agreement is not reached (which has to be verified by the mediator), then the case goes to court.Learn More
