Guidance Note: In-Court Family Mediation Services

This Guidance is issued by the Ministry of Justice and comes into effect immediately to provide improved access to mediation services and prevent court delays.

The pre-application protocol for family Mediation Information and Assessment Meetings (MIAM) came into effect on 6 April 2011.

There will be instances where self-funding individuals will attend court and be unaware of the need to have MIAM. Or they may be referred to a MIAM at the first hearing.  It has been agreed by the Justice Minister Jonathan Djanogly MP that mediators ought to be able to charge those that are self-funded for the MIAM or Mediation Sessions within the court precinct.
