There is a network of approved Family Mediators across England who are there to help you to reach decisions about things that are important to you and your family. Mediators can help you to find a way to plan for the future and to agree what will work best for you without having to go to court. 

Mediation provides you with the space and time to think about what is important for your children and the whole family. You can work out how arrangements for your children will work best and think what is going to be important for your children as they grow up.

Legal Aid is available for mediation. Find out if you qualify for this support here.
