WHAT IS FAMILY MEDIATION?
The Family Mediation Council describes family mediation "as a process in which an independent, professionally trained mediator helps you work out arrangements for your children and/or finances following separation."
Mediation can also be helpful when arrangements you've made before need to change, particularly as your children grow up.
Mediation helps you stay in control. The mediator will help you to find a solution that works for you both and will explain what needs to happen to make an agreement between you legally binding. The process is less stressful and significantly quicker than going to court and can save you money. Legal aid is also available if you are financially eligible.
"Thank you so much for your time yesterday. It was a pleasure to meet you.
I appreciate your advice and would like to say you offer a fantastic service. I’d have no doubt recommending you to anyone going through such circumstances."
"Mediation enabled face to face contact in a safe and structured setting, where points of issue were sought and discussed. Both parties had a chance to say what they felt needed to be said."
"The service helped enormously and ensured we were calm, organised and made swift progress."
"It would have been impossible for us to sort this out on our own and we did not want the formality or expense of solicitors at this stage."
"Laura supported the conversation allowing me to heard. The process created a communication channel which allowed for regular access with our daughter and gave me the ability to voice my concerns and ask questions."
"Pax Mediation is a brilliant service that works better and so much faster than the courts with positive results."
"The service made the process of separation easier. Helped clarify ways forward in terms of financial arrangements and the kids. Gave me some structure and focus, particularly when we agreed to timescales."
"At the most difficult of times the mediation felt so important and allowed us to begin moving on."

MOJ VOUCHER SCHEME
Pax Mediation are authorised by the Family Mediation Council (FMC) to take part in the MOJ Voucher Scheme. This is a time-limited scheme, designed to support parties who may be able to resolve their family law disputes outside of court.
The Government has set up the scheme in response to COVID-19 to support recovery in the family court and to encourage more people to consider mediation as a means of resolving their disputes, where appropriate. To support this, a financial contribution of up to £500 towards the costs of mediation sessions will be provided to eligible cases.
