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

Denise Todd BSc MPhil FMCA-Family Mediator
I hold the highest level of family mediation accreditation (FMCA). Having worked in the family justice system for over 20 years, I have conducted many hundreds of successful mediations.
I will expertly support you to resolve disputes about children, property and finance.
Aware of the stressful housing problems separating families can face, I donate £3 from every referral to the homelessness charity, Shelter.
I offer a dedicated on-line service. Don’t worry about the technology; you need only a phone or computer and an internet connection.
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...
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.

“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”
