Before you commit to mediation with us, we will always meet with you for a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting (MIAM).
It is important for you to have confidence in us and we understand that you need to meet with us face-to-face before making the important decision of how you want to deal with your issues and who you want to help you.
What is a MIAM?
The MIAM is a confidential, in-depth meeting (without the other party present) for around one hour giving you the opportunity to meet with us and talk about your particular circumstances and issues. We will discuss with you the different ways your issues can be dealt with:
- Collaborative Law
- Court Proceedings
- Solicitor Negotiation
We will also explore the different forms of mediation we offer, including:
- Child-inclusive mediation
- Lawyer-inclusive mediation
Where mediation is suitable, we will provide you with a bespoke mediation plan setting out the mediation process we feel best suits you.
At the end of the MIAM we will provide you with written confirmation covering your next steps.
