Family Mediation Week 2024

Family Mediation Week runs from 22nd – 26th January 2024, organised by the Family Mediation Council and supported by Resolution, the idea is to raise awareness of Family Mediation and the constructive benefits of mediation within Family matters.

The Courts should always be seen as a last resort and mediation, as an Alternative Dispute Resolution, can be effective for many people in resolving their dispute.

Where appropriate, the Family Team at Browell Smith and Co, encourage parties to mediate.

Mediation can be a far cheaper process than Court proceedings. The fact that parties are fully involved and engaged in mediation can make the process less acrimonious and the ultimate resolution far more palatable.

Assistance with mediation may be available via Legal Aid or the Ministry of Justice’s Family Mediation Voucher Scheme which meets up to £500.00 of mediation costs for families should they need to discuss arrangements for children.

If you currently have an ongoing issue and would like advice and assistance regarding the mediation process then please do not hesitate to contact our Family Team.
