What is a MIAM?
MIAMs are essential for most people who need to take a separation or divorce matter to court.
Mediation is voluntary. If, after talking it through with our mediator, you feel this isn’t going to be the best way forward for you that is your choice . You may have to consider it but you don’t have to do it – though for most people it is the best option to try first.
In our experience, having a separate individual meeting with your mediator before progressing to mediation is very important. It gives you an opportunity to explain to the mediator the background to your situation and what you feel needs to be sorted out. We will explain how mediation can help you and we will also check the best way of organising your mediation meeting to ensure everyone’s views are heard and understood.
We provide MIAMS and are authorised to sign the relevant court application forms (Form A and/or C100) to confirm that you have considered or tried mediation.
