Family Mediation Week: Mock Family Mediation

By Zen Thompson

Solicitor, Mediator and Arbitrator

This week (18-22 January) is Family Mediation Week, which aims to raise awareness of the benefits of mediation for separating couples.

As part of this, the Family Mediation Council has produced a mock family mediation, showing how family mediation works.

The video is available on Youtube and is a very realistic demonstration of mediation between separated parents: Mock Family Mediation – Family Mediation Week 2021

Throughout Family Mediation Week, the Family Mediation Council will be sharing information about family mediation to help people understand more about how it works, when it might be suitable, the importance of involving older children in the process of deciding what happens to them, and how it can be funded – including through legal aid.

Nockolds is pleased to support Family Mediation Week and has several mediators throughout the firm. Zen Thompson, Senior Associate in our Family Law Team, is an accredited mediator with the Family Mediation Council and is on their Professional Practice Consultant advisory panel.
