Separating couples to receive mediating session from 3 November
Government announces free mediation sessions to couples separating in England and Wales. Couples with plans to separate in England and Wales will now be able deal with their own problems upon separating according to a recent announcement from the government.
From 3rd November the first mediating session for both parties will be fully funded as long as at least
one of the mediating couple is already receiving legal aid.
Family Mediation proven to work
The new initiative follows government reports last year that
“Almost two thirds of couples attending mediation to settle disputes over children, were able to come to an agreement after just one mediation session.”
Similarly, of all the couples that opted for mediation, 7 out of 10 were able to reach a final agreement. This new approach is seen as a way to hand control to families so they can handle the details
of their separation and plan for the future rather than relinquish control to the family courts.
