When faced with the prospect of divorce, financial settlement or conflict over matters concerning your children, you may choose to try and resolve these issues through mediation.
You may wonder what happens at a mediation session.
Before the first family mediation session, both parties will have already met with the mediator at a Mediation Information Assessment Meeting (MIAM) which establishes familiarity with your mediator and the environment for mediation.

Above all, the mediator will always remain impartial.
