If you are planning to start court proceedings, then it is usually required (unless specific exemptions apply) that you have had an individual (just you and a mediator) pre-mediation assessment known as a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting (MIAM).  Please have a look at our information on our “Is Family Mediation Compulsory?” page which explains this. If you are interested in arranging a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting (MIAM) then please have a look at our information here. When you arrange your MIAM with us, we take it as your agreement to these terms.
