Mediation Information Assessment Meeting

MIAM

Only Family Mediation Council Accredited mediators (FMCA) can conduct a MIAM.

Prior to mediation taking place or a court application to the family court being made you must attend a MIAM: exemptions do apply.

At the Miam your personal details are taken, you provide background details of your situation; share any concerns, worries, and your needs in the short and long term. The mediator will take you through a safeguarding to ensure mediation is suitable or if we need to take something into consideration when mediating.

We will assess if your case is suitable for mediation.

The mediator will explain to you the benefits of using mediation, reducing costs, reducing time to a resolution, you making decisions, what it is, what it can and cannot do and how it may assist in your case and what other services are available to support you if you choose not to mediate.

Other services - Solicitors, McKenzie Friends, Arbitrators, Divorce, Relationship, counsellors and Family workers.

Once you have completed your MIAM and decided you wish to mediate we will write to your ex partner to invite them to attend a MIAM with a view to mediating.

If you or they decide not to mediate or mediation does not achieve a full resolution and a court application is required the mediation certificate for court can be requested.
