Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting 

You can attend separately or together to discuss your circumstances and find out more about the mediation process and the courses of action that are open to you.  At the MIAM you will be asked for brief background details, so that the Mediator can assess whether or not the case is a suitable one for mediation, basic safeguarding is carried out, and the process of mediation is explained.  Typically, a MIAM lasts for around 45 minutes.  The cost is £95 + VAT per person.  You can book an appointment online, or call us on 0800 064 4488 to check availability.  It is usually possible to get an appointment for a MIAM at short notice.

At the conclusion of the MIAM, you can decide whether or not you wish to go on to mediate. 

In the event that the case is unsuitable for mediation, or if you simply do not feel it is for you, you can request a signed certificate from the Mediator to enable you to submit an application to Court.

Mediators that specialise in MIAM

Martha Monday


Martha has extensive mediation experience, having been mediating on a regular basis since 1998. She practised simultaneously as a family law barrister for 16 years, but has recently resigned from the Bar to concentrate upon her mediation practice, preferring the investigative, empowering and non-adversarial approach offered by this process of dispute resolution. Assisted by her honed listening and negotiation skills, she has an exceptional track record of successful mediations. Martha conveys a degree of empathy, whilst remaining alert to the needs of all parties to find fair, practical solutions
