The Family Mediation department is very pleased to have passed a successful audit by the Legal Aid Agency at the beginning of February. The auditor spent a day in the department, reviewing files and checking procedures and was very satisfied with the standard of files and quality of work. This means that we can continue to provide Legal Aid to all our eligible mediation clients.
If you qualify for Legal Aid this means that the Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting (MIAM) is free for you and for the other person too. It also means that if mediation goes ahead the first joint session is also free to both clients.
We will assess you for Legal Aid at the beginning of your MIAM so you can decide whether to go ahead with the meeting or not.
For clients who are not eligible for Legal Aid we charge £72 for the MIAM and £48 if you need the FM1 form to go to court. For mediation sessions the cost is £120 each per hour. All these prices are inclusive of VAT.
If you think you might be eligible for Legal Aid please give Rebecca Kershaw a call on 01405 813108 or email her on firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss what documents we will need to assess you.
