Family Mediation Basingstoke

The first step is to conduct a Mediation Information & Assessment Meeting, or MIAM. This is where your mediator will discuss the case with you and the available choices. They will discuss how mediation differs from court-based separations and divorces. They will explain that family mediation is optional, that it is secret, that the mediator is unbiased, and that the participants, not the court, make decisions.

If everyone agrees that mediation should proceed, the first sessions will be scheduled. Typically, family mediation sessions are done in blocks of one and a half hours, however longer sessions are offered when necessary.

Both parties and the mediator are often present in the same room to facilitate an open discourse and debate. The mediator is unbiased and is not present to provide legal advice or render a decision. Participants are responsible for reaching their own deliberate agreements during or after conversations.

In some instances, it is problematic for participants to sit in the same room. Each participant has their own room, and the mediator “shuttles” between the rooms.

The increasingly common hybrid format is used for online mediation. This is when the mediator and participants meet remotely through video conferencing, eliminating the need for anybody to go to a mediation suite. This is especially important when the partners live far away or cannot take time off during the day due to job obligations. We have performed online mediations with participants from as far away as Australia and several other countries. Participants in online mediation may also mediate from the comfort of their own home or workplace, and many find it preferable to in-person meetings.

The agenda for the mediation sessions is determined by the parties, and it is the mediator’s responsibility to support these conversations, assist the parties in focusing on the problems at hand, and choose how to proceed in the future. The focus of family mediation is on the future, not the past, particularly when children are involved.
