Seeking resolution in York? Family mediation services offer a stress-free alternative to settle cases involving relationships like marriage, civil partnerships, and parenthood. Skilled mediators prevent disputes from escalating, providing an unbiased and positive voice throughout the process. In many family law cases, including divorce, civil partnership parties the courts require parties to carefully consider mediation as an option before proceedings concerning finances or children can be issued. Before proceeding to court, attending a MIAM (Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting) is required, ensuring your case moves forward smoothly.

Our experienced team understands the emotional complexities involved in financial disputes and is committed to guiding clients towards fair and equitable solutions and, where there are children, ensuring there needs are met and voices heard.

Mediation is an accredited, fully trained independent voice for your divorce or dissolution proceedings. A mediator will work with all involved parties to represent everyone’s voice and opinions equally, in an unbiased way.
In cases where you find it difficult to negotiate, or to even be in the same room as each other, a mediator can help you to make progress. This can include ‘shuttle mediation’ where the mediator literally goes between rooms to pass messages back and forth, so the conversation may take place without face-to-face confrontation.
It’s a tried, tested and proven technique that can resolve cases faster, with outcomes that are mutually agreeable for both parties, any children involved, and even for the extended family like grandparents.
“I have just made the payment for the mediation services. Thank you very much for the conversation, it was really useful, all very professional and accurate but at the same time, kind and personal. I wish all people in processes regarding family law have the luck to find such great professionals. “
“I didn’t know that mediation was an option in my situation but it was the best course of action to avoid the expense and stress of going to court. Marcia worked with us and enabled us to come to a solution that everyone was happy with. It was extremely helpful.”
“Marcia definitely gets a 10/10 from me and a big THANKYOU. Hopefully things will be back to normal for me and my son in no time.”
“Everything Marcia suggested thankfully my ex-partner agreed to. Marcia is a complete professional and excellent at her job, I would recommend her to anyone that’s in a similar situation to me.“
“As it stood I didn’t know when the next time I’d be able to see my son would be, but after Marcia set up a mediation meeting with me and his mum it looks like I’m going to get to see him on a regular basis again.”
“To avoid any doubt, the Zoom meeting didn’t eradicate all anxiety, as any form of contact I provide to my ex partner will always be too much, but it absolutely minimised it. I wouldn’t have participated in a general mediation meeting, it would have made me very poorly. I will always recommend a mediation meeting via video link, and Zoom worked for me.”
Mediation is very much an ongoing process, giving you support from your first moment of contact right through until after your case has concluded. Your mediator is here for you to keep negotiations moving forward amicably and to resolve any issues as and when they arise. It all starts with an email or telephone call to set up contact with no obligation to proceed with mediation.
Please telephone for a chat to see how we can help you - the first meeting is completely without obligation. It starts here!
By focussing on what can be agreed, rather than on what can’t, we facilitate a solution that works for both of you and allows each to move on.
Stay with us as you need us to help define the path in life and/or in business and keep everyone on it.
