MediationMK for separating couples
For couples and families

What are the benefits?

Gives you more say about what happens. In court a judge will make the decisions. With mediation you and the other party make the decisions. It's less stressful, with less conflict between you and your partner. If you have children it is less upsetting for them. It can help find ways for everyone involved to get on better in the future. It improves communication and helps you sort out your future. It's flexible and agreements can be changed when circumstances change. It's easier on your children when parents co-operate and helps them continue important family relationships. It's quicker, cheaper and provides a better way to sort out disagreements than long drawn-out court battles – helping you to get on with the rest of your life as quickly as possible.

Contact MediationMK as soon as you and your partner have decided to split up and need help sorting out arrangements – the sooner the better, before the issues become big problems. You don’t need to see a solicitor first.

Even if you have been separated for a while, or if your case has already gone to court, mediation can help to resolve any dispute you may have.

The first step is to attend a meeting with us so you can find out more about mediation and if it’s right for you. This is called a Mediation Information Assessment Meeting (MIAM). You can go with your partner, or you can see the mediator separately if you prefer.
