The informality and openness of mediation is fundamentally why it is a successful way of resolving disputes. It is still of course necessary for a divorce or marital separation to be made legal through the court process, but mediation has proved to be an efficient means of settling relating issues that evolve. This may be to reach an agreement over access and arrangements for children, property and financial disputes arising from a marriage or civil partnership that has dissolved.

Getting a divorce can be a very emotional time and in all of the whirlwind of making decisions you may forget about the legal and technical side of things. It is very important that you stay focussed on the current situation as to the law on divorce and in this respect the Child and Families Act 2014 is the most important piece of legislation to be amended this year. Unless there are extreme cases, for example if there is a child protection issue, you and your partner must absolutely attend MIAMS (Mediation Information and Assessment meetings). Without these your divorce can not proceed to court.
