How can I make use of legal aid for family mediation?

You can use mediation covered by legal aid to manage any dispute following a family breakdown which may end up in court. You can sort out childcare arrangements or get assistance if those have broken down and you are not seeing your children. You can also use mediation to sort out financial arrangements after separation or divorce.

What if I do not qualify for legal aid for mediation but the other person does?

If you do not qualify for legal aid yourself, but the other person does, the cost of your initial assessment meeting (MIAM) will also be FREE for you, as will your first joint mediation session with the other person. Beyond that, you would have to pay our usual private fees (see 'Costs' in the menu above).

If I get legal aid for mediation, can I also get free legal advice?

Mediators are not able to give legal advice, but it can be helpful to get legal advice from a solicitor as part of the mediation process. If you are eligible for legal aid for mediation, and you have started mediating with one another, the Legal Agency will pay for you to get some legal advice in support of mediation from a solicitor who offers legal aid.

What are my other options if I do not qualify for legal aid?

You may be eligible for a voucher under the current government voucher scheme if you are looking at issues regarding a child or family financial matters which also involve matters relating to a child. We are signed up to the voucher scheme and have already helped lots of families to use their voucher of up to £500 towards the costs of mediation.
