When relationships break down it is often difficult for separating couples to talk to each other. Mediation is a service to help couples who have decided to separate or divorce to communicate with each other and work out mutually acceptable arrangements. Mediation can be used even if you have already instructed a solicitor.

The Law Society's Family Mediation Accreditation Scheme
We are members of the Law Society's Family Mediation Accreditation, which provides a recognised quality standard for mediators and is designed to cover all types of issues where mediation is appropriate as a result of a family breakdown. Accreditation covers those providing advice under a legal aid contract, as well as privately funded work.
As the Law Society is a member organisation of the Family Mediation Council (FMC), the Family Mediation Accreditation has been designed to ensure compliance with their Professional Standards and Self-Regulatory Framework.
As an accredited member, we agree to follow the Family Mediation Council's Code of Practice. The code outlines the aims, objectives and scope of family mediation, including general principles, as well as the required training and standards.
