A new scheme launched by the Government will help more couples access mediation. Applicants can apply for the new £500 family mediation voucher that can be used towards the cost.

Mediation is a more cost effective and quicker way of resolving a dispute, often sparing families the trauma of going to court and reducing the impact on their children. Couples work through their differences with a mediator and agree terms that both parties accept. This can include finances, child access arrangements and negates the need for a judge to be involved. It can then be made a legally binding and enforceable court order.

Couples will qualify for the a voucher if they want to resolve differences concerning children and can find out more about the scheme from the Mediation Information and Assessment meeting or speaking to a family mediator.
