FAQ’s – Family Mediation / Family Law / Divorce

 

Does a mediator have to sign a C100?

Unless there is a genuine emergency or a prescribed exception applies – then it is now necessary for a family mediator who is accredited with the Family Mediation Council to meet with the person wishing to make the application for a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting and for the family mediator to sign the C 100 court form either saying that one or both of the couple have declined mediation or that mediation is unsuitable.

The idea is to encourage parents/parties to try to resolve issues about child arrangements by negotiation within mediation – rather than one making an application to the court.
There is no requirement to mediate. The requirement is to consider mediation.

 

Does a mediator have to sign a Form A?

As with the C 100 (see above) – unless certain exemptions apply – then someone wanting to make an application to the court for a financial order needs to meet with a mediator to consider whether mediation can be used to enable them to resolve the disagreement.

The mediator will sign the form A if they are satisfied that mediation is unsuitable as a way of resolving the dispute or if one or both of the parties decline to use mediation.
There is no requirement to mediate. The requirement is to consider mediation.

 

How much do family mediators charge

Please see the answer to the question: how much does a family mediator cost?

The answer is it depends upon whether you qualify for legal aid and then what the dispute is about and how many meetings it is likely to take to resolve.

Successful mediation usually involves several meetings – if finding a solution was that easy – you probably would have found the solution already.

 

How much does a family mediator cost

The cost of family mediation depends upon the matters that need to be resolved and the time spent achieving resolution.

If a party qualifies for legal aid for family mediation then the legal aid agency will pay for all of that person’s costs in the mediation – so FOR THE LEGALLY AIDED CLIENT; MEDIATION IS FREE. If the other person in the case doesn’t qualify for legal aid – then the legal aid agency will pay the non-legally aided persons costs for the first meeting.

If you don’t qualify for legal aid, then our charges are set out on our charges page. https://familylawandmediation.co.uk/payments-2/family-mediation-charges/
the starting point is that both potential clients will have a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting or MIAM to decide if mediation is the right process for them and to understand precisely what is involved.

After we have met with both for their Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting, we will be able to give an individual cost estimate.

When thinking about the costs of family mediation it is important to understand that mediation is a process.

When looking at child arrangements a process is required to improve trust and communications and to make real changes and for them to become embedded.
Success comes from taking a series of steps and both delivering upon what they say they are going to do. This is unlikely to be achieved in one meeting.

When looking at financial arrangements, before the discussions can move on to finding solutions, time must be taken to ensure that there is full financial disclosure and that couples obtain additional information (such as finding out about mortgage raising capacity or house valuations et cetera) so that both can make informed choices.

A normal and successful family mediation will therefore take 3 – 4 meetings after the initial assessment meetings.
Sometimes, when solicitors are involved and in financial cases where financial disclosure has already taken place, it will be possible to move to a single decision-making meeting straightaway.

When we have met for the Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting we will be able to give you a better idea about both numbers of meetings and cost.
A short single meeting will rarely resolve anything.

How to find a family mediator

You are on our website. We are a family mediation service as well as being a legal practice. Therefore, by finding our website you have also found a family mediator.

As a legal practice we use other family mediators from time to time. When deciding who to instruct as a family mediator on a particular case, we are mindful of our own detailed local knowledge of other mediators in our area and their practices.

It would be very unusual for us to instruct a mediator who is not legally qualified. This is because we are of the view that in family matters, it is usually much better for the mediator to have a good knowledge of the legal principles which would come into play if a sensible agreement cannot be achieved.

If you are not in our area then a good starting point to find a family mediator with a legal background is: http://www.resolution.org.uk/find_a_mediator/

 

How to find a good family mediator

Good family mediation is something that requires practice and experience.

Experienced family mediators will have achieved accredited status. The relevant accreditation schemes are with the Law Society: http://solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk/ this is a link to the find a solicitor page. By using the pro search option to find a person and then the more search options to find a solicitor with the family mediation accreditation, you will be able to find an accredited family mediator in your area.

In our practice, Ian Walker and David Howell Richardson are both accredited on the Law Society Family Mediation Accreditation Scheme. In the alternative, a local family mediator could also be found using the search page on the website of the Family Mediation Council: https://www.familymediationcouncil.org.uk/find-local-mediator/

With this search tool, the results do not immediately show which mediators have achieved accreditation standard. You need to click into the details of the individual mediator from the list which the search provides.

Ian Walker is accredited as a family mediator by the Family Mediation Council.
In our view the law society accreditation is the more rigorous accreditation standard.

 

What do family mediators do?

Family mediation is a way to find solutions to family related problems. Most often these would include the arrangements through which children spend time with their parents or resolving the financial implications of a divorce. The subject of family mediation can be any problem between family members.

Family mediation is a process of confidential negotiation.

The family mediator facilitates the negotiation/mediation.

The family mediator provides a neutral and safe venue for the mediation. The family mediator will assist the couple to focus on those matters which need to be discussed in order to find a solution. The family mediator will keep a neutral record of what is discussed and proposals that are made.

The family mediator will encourage the couple to adopt a problem-solving approach so that they can find solutions to the problem which have benefits for both and in particular have the most benefits possible for their children.
The family mediator can provide information. If the family mediator is a divorce lawyer or family law solicitor, they will be better able to provide information about legal principles and processes than someone who does not have legal qualification. This information can assist the couple to make informed choices

A legally qualified family mediator will also be able to say when a couple are proposing a solution which is not one that a court would consider to be reasonable.

The family mediator will have been trained and will have skills which they will use to assist the couple to listen to each other and to discuss the matters that need to be resolved in a constructive way.

What does a family mediator do

Please see the answer to the question above: What do family mediators do?

 

What is a family mediator

A family mediator can come from a variety of professional backgrounds. Many family mediators are also family Law solicitors – but this is not an essential requirement.

Family mediators can also come from other professional backgrounds where they will work with families. For example social work, counselling, therapy. Family mediators can also be accountants.

The role of a family mediator is to provide neutral facilitation of the confidential negotiations that make up family mediation. This neutrality is extremely important.

Family mediation takes place within the shadow of the law. By this we mean – if the family mediation fails to produce a mutually acceptable outcome – then either or both of the couple may make an application to the court and a judge may decide what the couple should do (for example: what the financial settlement from the divorce or the child arrangements should be).

A court will make decisions based upon the application of various legal principles to the facts of the case in question. Because of this, in our view it is usually better for the family mediator to be legally qualified – because they will be able to explain the meaning of the relevant legal principles – which will better assist the couple to make the best informed choices.

Who is the best mediator near me?

Choosing the right mediator for you and the other party is an important choice. It cannot be said that there is an absolute best mediator.

When choosing a mediator, it is sensible to consider their professional background (are they a solicitor or do they have no legal background at all?), Do they have any accreditation’s? (The key accreditation’s are with the Family Mediation Council: FMCA or the Law Society), how long have they been practicing as a mediator?

If the mediation is about children issues – what arrangements they have in place for obtaining the views of your children? Sometimes it is helpful to obtain the views of your children, other times it isn’t. What is important is to have the option.

What would the mediator do if mediation is not successful? In our practice we promote mediation with arbitration. We encourage clients who are stuck in mediation to obtain resolution of stuck issues through the use of arbitration.

Does the mediator practice solicitor inclusive mediation?

There are lots of things to think about.

What is also important to remember is that the mediator doesn’t have a magic wand. Mediation will only work if both parties entering the mediation want to use mediation to find a solution.

Therefore what do you really want? What does the other person really want? What compromises can you make to assist them make progress in achieving what they want? Whilst allowing them to make compromises to assist you in achieving what you want?

Successful mediation requires listening and compromise and a forward-looking problem-solving approach. You could have the best mediator in the world and the mediation would be unsuccessful if the parties in mediation have no desire to compromise….

 

Does family mediation work?

Family mediation can work. However, the mediator doesn’t have a magic wand.

Success in mediation is down to the participants.

Successful mediation requires taking a forward-looking and problem-solving approach. The past cannot be undone. The future can be shaped. Solving the big problem will help solve the smaller problems.

Therefore – success in mediation requires both to think about what they want to achieve out of mediation. Can they find common goals? For example child arrangements that genuinely work and where everyone is happy? Or achieving a straightforward divorce and a and financial settlement where the housing needs of all can be met?

If the couple can work together to find ways to solve the joint problem in a mutually acceptable and fair way – then their mediation has good prospects of success. If one or both of the couple simply want to use to continue ongoing disputes and to force the other to compromise – without making compromises themselves – then mediation is unlikely to succeed.

 

Do I have to go to family mediation?

Family mediation is not compulsory.

In non-urgent cases it is currently a requirement for someone wishing to make an application to the court to attend a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting or MIAM. However once the MIAM is complete, there is no requirement to go on to mediation.

Part of the way in which mediation works is through it being a voluntary process. Each party knows that the other party is attending mediation because they want to use mediation to find a solution to their joint problems. This gives both confidence that there is a commitment to find a solution.

Attending a MIAM is compulsory (except in urgent cases) because the courts recognise that it is better that parents and/or separating couples resolve their family problems together if possible through talking in mediation – rather than through a lengthy and costly court process.

 

How do I prepare for family mediation?

Firstly, you need to think: what do I really want to achieve? What does the other person want to achieve? What joint goals can there be? What compromises can I make to assist them in achieving their goals/joint goals? What compromises do I really need from the other person? What compromises are they able to make?

If the mediation is about financial issues – then you need to prepare your financial information. You also need to think about the practicalities of a financial settlement. How am I going to meet the housing needs of our children? How am I going to assist the other person in meeting their housing needs? How am I going to meet my own housing needs? What is my mortgage raising capacity? Am I able to borrow money from family members?

If the mediation is about child arrangements then you need to think about small steps that can be taken to achieve long-term goals. The solution won’t happen instantaneously. It will be taken through a series of smaller steps. What steps are realistic?

Mediation can be stressful. The reason why mediation is required is because a couple have not been able to find a solution by talking directly to each other. Couples often separate because they no longer get on. Talking about big issues will be stressful. Therefore, are there things that you can do to reduce that stress? Good preparation is one thing. Another is being prepared to listen to the other person and not to dismiss their ideas and proposals out of hand. But also think about your own support. It is helpful if your support network are supportive of you trying to find a solution – rather than being negative. Sometimes counselling or stress release/management strategies can also be helpful.

There is a well known saying: fail to prepare – prepare to fail. That is true with mediation as with many other things in life.

 

Can mediation make things worse?

Unfortunately the answer is sometimes – yes.

When a couple enter mediation, they will already be in disagreement with each other. The starting point of mediation is that they have agreed that they cannot reach an agreement without help. They both choose to mediate because they hope to find a solution together with the help of the independent mediator.

If there is a breach of trust within mediation or if there is not a serious attempt to resolve matters amicably then this can make relations worse.

For example – if a couple agree to changes to child arrangements – but one then reneges on the arrangements without good reason – this is not going to assist further changes.

Mediation is not about coming into the meeting and repeating in a hostile way proposals that have already been rejected or using the meeting to repeat past grievances.

Mediation is intended as a constructive process to look at how to make the future better. Mediation is an opportunity to try different things and it to be successful it requires thinking about things creatively. How do you persuade the other person to agree what you want them to agree to? The answer is invariably by giving them something that they want? In other words by creating win/win solutions.

Delivery on what you say you were going to do is also fundamentally important. Don’t offer to do something unless you are prepared to carry it out.

Whether mediation is successful or not very much depends upon the commitment of the couple.

Family Law FAQs

 

Who is the best family law solicitor near me?

How to find a great family solicitor?

Can I have a free consultation with a family law solicitor?

Some solicitors will offer a free consultation but be careful. When a solicitor gives advice they can in theory be subject to a claim for professional negligence – if the advice is incorrect. The solicitor will need to open a file and keep a record of both the discussion and the advice given. These actions will take up time and there will be a cost and risk for the solicitor. For the solicitor to be able to give good advice they will need as much information as possible and it would be unlikely for the solicitor to have all the information that they would need to give best advice and answer follow-up questions in a short and limited free consultation.

What normally happens is that the solicitor will not give advice – but instead will listen to the client explain the problem and then give some general information about the services that they can offer – without giving advice. If advice is required the solicitors charging clock will then go on and the client will be charged for the time spent giving advice.

We have a very full website and we provide lots of information on our website (but no advice) for FREE. We also have video clips of most of our solicitors on their profile pages so that you have a better feeling of what they are like before you meet them.

Because we provide so much free on our website we prefer to go straight to a proper meeting when we first meet with a client. This means that the meeting will be for one hour and we will give advice during the meeting. We will also send to you a copy of our attendance note.

This doesn’t mean that we can give all the answers when we first meet – but we can and will be as helpful as we possibly can. For this we charge a discounted fee of £100 plus VAT.

You could view this as the first half-hour being free and the 2nd half-hour being paid for if that is an easier way to think about things. But we feel that charging a discounted/modest fee is the fair way of doing things.

We are very open about how we charge. All of our charging rates have always been published on our website. It is our understanding that our rates are lower than the firm’s to whom we would wish to be compared. We have a very experienced team of family lawyers and we should have a team member who has the specialism to help you.

Do I need a solicitor for family court do you have to pay for a family solicitor
family solicitors that do legal aid how much are solicitors fees for family law

The solicitor’s fees will depend upon what you asked them to do.
If you are simply seeking advice in support of a mediation process, then the fees are likely to be fairly modest.

If you are engaging a solicitor to represent you in a court process, then the solicitor’s charges will be dependent upon how complicated the case is and the number of court hearings.

More complicated cases will involve the gathering and assessment of evidence and preparing the case for a contested hearing. Court hearings will also try to find out whether it is possible for the case to be resolved without the need for a judge to make a decision.

To be able to give a good cost estimate we will need to meet you and find out about your case.

Solicitors almost invariably charge in family cases by reference to an hourly charging rate. What this rate will depend upon a number of factors including the experience of the fee earner and where they are located.

We are very open about how we charge and we have always published our hourly charging rates on our website at https://familylawandmediation.co.uk/payments-2/
From the market research that we have done, we believe that our hourly charging rates are lower than the firm’s to whom we would wish to be compared. Most solicitors practices do not publish their hourly charging rates on their websites.

We are aware of some solicitors who charge less than us – or at least their hourly charging rates are lower. Our experienced team has access in our view the best family Law practice support service and library and our firm has the Law Society Lexcel Practice Management Accreditation. We also have a substantial and experienced team of family law specialists.

It is likely to be the case that a firm with cheaper hourly rates is much less likely to have any/most/all of the components which make up our service.

Fees will also depend upon the approach that a solicitor takes. Discouraging negotiation and driving the case towards a contested hearing is likely to incur higher costs than engaging in sensible negotiation and seeking to resolve matters in a sensible way at a reasonably early stage. Negotiation requires skill and focus.

The use of negotiation and dispute resolution is embedded in the DNA of our practice.

When you come in to see us we will give you the best cost estimate that we can.

If the case is about child arrangements – then the first hearing will be what is called a First Hearing Dispute Resolution Appointment. If there are no child welfare issues raised and the court is of the view that the children in question are not old enough for it to be helpful to find out what their wishes and feelings are – then the case would then be listed for a final hearing. Prior to the final hearing the parties will file statements of evidence which will explain their cases.

The court would hope that the pressure of being at court and the knowledge that quite a lot of cost is likely to be incurred if the case goes to a final hearing – then the parties will reach a sensible negotiated solution.

A representative from Cafcass will normally be present at a First Hearing Dispute Resolution Appointment. The Cafcass officer can assist negotiations as well.

If an agreement can be reached, then provided that the Judge is satisfied that it is better for the children for there to be a court order (then there being no court order) then a final order could be made at this first hearing.

Having representation and a solicitor to assist in negotiating and then to draft the final order can be invaluable in terms of avoiding costs and future dispute.

Legal representation can ensure that a court order is clearly worded. There are things which we might want to be included in a draft order which someone without legal qualification might not think about. This is because we have the experience of seeing when agreements and orders go wrong.

If the case does not settle at the first hearing – then having legal representation at the first hearing dispute resolution appointment is also important because it is at this hearing that the court often makes directions which set out very tightly how the final hearing will take place. These directions are likely to limit the evidence that can be relied upon. It is therefore important to have made a preliminary assessment of evidence before the first hearing takes place.

 

How to find a good family law solicitor?

You have found our website – so we would hope that you have already answered this question for yourself by clicking onto our pages.

On the profile pages of each of the members of our team there is some information about them and there is also (in most cases) a video clip.

We would urge you to make an appointment to come and see us so that we can talk about the specifics of your case and how we can assist you in achieving the best outcome that may be possible.

Solicitors that do legal aid for family law

By clicking onto our pages you have found a solicitors practice with a legal aid contract for family law.

If you and your children are the subject of a case being brought by social services – you are most likely entitled to free legal aid.

In other cases legal aid is means tested and the legal aid agency must also be satisfied that you have a good enough case to justify legal aid being made available to you. In non-social services cases evidence of past domestic abuse will also be required.

Our legal aid pages also have links to relevant pages on the legal aid agency website which include the means test and domestic abuse evidence requirements. See here https://familylawandmediation.co.uk/payments-2/legal-aid/ legal aid is complicated. So please give us a call.

Unfortunately legal aid is much less available than it was 6 years and more ago. There are many cases now where a client might have got legal aid in the past but they are no longer eligible.
We will do our best – but we can’t achieve the impossible!

 

What does a family solicitor do?

A family law solicitor is a solicitor who specialises in the practice of family Law. Family law is quite a broad area of law and includes: divorce, divorce Finance, separation and cohabitee property disputes, protection from domestic abuse, child arrangements, child custody, relocation of children both within the UK and overseas, child abduction, surrogacy, cases brought by social services.

It is unusual for a family solicitor to be expert in all aspects of family Law. Within family law solicitors will usually have particular expertise.

The job of a family solicitor is to advise and represent their client. Sometimes this will include going to court and appearing as an advocate on behalf of their client. Sometimes the advocacy will be undertaken by a specialist barrister.

What the solicitor will deal with is the day-to-day running of the case/negotiations and preparation of evidence and generally getting the case ready for a final hearing so that a judge will be able to make a decision.

Many cases do settle – so the solicitor will also be using their skills to engage in sensible and realistic negotiation.

The solicitor will also undertake drafting of documents including orders and agreements (for example consent orders, prenuptial agreements, postnuptial agreements, cohabitation agreements et cetera).

 

What questions to ask a family law solicitor

who the best family law solicitors are is something which will depend upon your case. There are lots of very good family solicitors who are experts in one area of family Law – but would be less good in dealing with a different aspect.

How to apply for a child arrangements order

Applying for a child arrangements order is relatively simple. The application requires the completion of the court form C 100 and this being sent to the court with copies (to be served upon the other party and Cafcass and a copy for yourself) and payment of the court fee.

In some circumstances, an applicant with very limited means may be able to obtain a fee exemption. There is a form that needs to be filled out to apply for this.

Unless there is a genuine emergency or an exemption from mediation (as set out in the C100 form) applies, then before the C 100 can be lodged with the court, the applicant will need to meet with a family mediator for a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting – so that mediation can be considered. The mediator will need to sign the C 100 form as well if mediation is not going to take place or has broken down. Without this the application should be rejected by the court (unless there is a genuine emergency).
