Free Mediation

The Family Mediation Voucher Scheme is a time-limited scheme to encourage more people to use mediation to resolve their family law disputes outside court

A financial contribution up to £500 towards the costs of mediation is available to eligible cases.

From 1st April 2021 Pathway Mediation is authorised by the Family Mediation Council (FMC) to take part in the scheme.

At your first session, or MIAM, I will assess whether or not your issues are suitable for mediation and are eligible for the voucher scheme. Note, if neither of you are eligible for Legal Aid you will have to pay for the MIAM

Online Mediation...

I offer a dedicated on-line service. Don’t worry about the technology; you need only a phone or computer and an internet connection.

I have everything in place to support you, no matter how limited your technical skills. Online Mediation Services from £90 per person per hour. Free if you qualify for Legal Aid

Child Arrangements

Child Arrangements...

Mediation can help you agree on the details of how you’ll look after your children, such as where they live, time spent with each parent and child maintenance. 

The average cost is £280 per person (free if you qualify for legal aid) set against several thousand for those settled via court. Mediation has high success rates and is vastly quicker than court proceedings: just a few weeks.

Property and Finance

Property and Finance...

It can feel overwhelming but I have the expertise to support you to a successful resolution that is significantly quicker and cheaper than the alternatives.

The average cost for Property & Finance mediation is £700 per person (free if you qualify for legal aid), compared to many thousands for non-mediated or court based settlements.

“Mediation gave us an opportunity to have an adult conversation, which has felt impossible for a while now. I feel we are on much more amicable terms as adults and co parents. Thank you for all your help, Denise. I don’t think we could have got to this point if we hadn’t attended”
