Family mediation is suitable for civil partners, divorcing couples and even co-habitating couples. Family mediation can also be helpful to resolve issues with extended family such as parents, siblings and in-laws.
Here at Midlands Dove our family mediation service can be completed in several different environments, to ensure all parties are able to participate. We can also help to assist families when it comes to MIAM, Child Arrangements and Family Remedy Orders.
Family mediation does however rely on all parties to attend sessions in order to achieve the best results. If you would like to find out more about Family Mediation in Mansfield, head over to our service page for more details on the process, location and costs.
Civil and Commercial mediation is best suited for resolving disputes between two or more parties. It can be ideal for a range of disputes in which our specialist mediators can help to guide the process and ensure disputes are correctly discussed with the aim of resolving these.
Civil mediation can also be a better alternative instead of taking a dispute to court, as parties can be more in control of the process. The process is a private matter in an environment that can suit the needs of the individuals involved.
More information on our Civil and Commercial mediation in Mansfield can be found on our service page or you can contact our mediators directly to enquire about the process, costs and how to get started.
Workplace mediation is recommended if employers and/or HR managers are finding it difficult to resolve an issue in the workplace. This could have a negative impact on work relationships, office moral and team based projects that reply on co-workers and managers to communicate effectively.
The workplace mediation process is a confidential one which will give individuals involved a chance to express how they are feeling and how they wish to move forward. The process is a voluntary one and so it is vital that both parties agree to workplace mediation.
Workplace mediation can be a positive action which provides many benefits to employers and employees, which will positively affect the workplace and the people within it.

What is Mediation?
Mediation is a neutral and non-court based process that is about working together with a trained mediator to come up with mutually agreeable solutions. We find that mediation is ideally suited to those who are able to cooperate amicably throughout the process.
You will meet with an impartial mediator in Mansfield (or at any location to suit your needs) and have as many mediation meetings necessary to come up with the solution you want. Mediation is often cheaper and quicker than going through the Courts as, very often, only a couple of sessions are required. Legal Aid is still available if you are eligible.
Mediation is most commonly used for relationship breakdown and family issues, but it can help resolve all kinds of disputes including those between neighbours, or in the workplace. Midlands Mediation provide family mediation, civil and commercial mediation, and workplace mediation in the Mansfield, Nottinghamshire area.
The Mediation Process
The first stage for Family Mediation is to attend a Mediation Information Assessment Meeting (MIAM) with one of our qualified Mediator Assessors. This meeting is usually free and at separate times for each individual. For anyone considering the more traditional solicitor based route; please note that the MIAM is now compulsory to prove to the Court that you have at least considered mediation before issuing financial or children applications in Court.
During the MIAM, we will explain the options available to you and assess whether Legal Aid may be available. If you decide to proceed with mediation in Mansfield, we will book your first mediation meeting with one of our fully accredited mediators. Please remember that the mediator’s role in this is neutral; they are not there to decide who is right and who is wrong.
We offer ‘shuttle mediation’ in the Mansfield and Nottinghamshire area. This is where each person meets with their mediator at the same time, but in separate rooms. The mediator goes between rooms on your behalf in order to discuss and resolve your issues.
The Mediation Outcome
Once you have been through mediation and have agreed your outcomes, you can have them turned into a formal legal ‘Settlement Agreement’ via a solicitor.
Our mediators in Mansfield are also solicitors, and they can guide you through the legal elements of the process, but they are unable to give legal advice – so you will need to seek legal advice independently.
If you are eligible for Legal Aid during your mediation then your legal advice element will also be free through your solicitor.
