The Family Justice Council has issued guidance for judges, magistrates and legal advisors on family mediation in England and Wales.

The guidance includes an explanation of the use of Mediation Information and Assessment Meetings (MIAMS) in relevant family proceedings and how they provide parties with the opportunity to find out about mediation and other forms of family dispute resolution.

The President of the Family Division, Sir James Munby, has endorsed the guidance, saying:

‘I commend this helpful and brief guide to family mediation. Mediation is an established and valued part of the dispute resolution process of which the Family Court also forms a part. It is important for judges to be aware of the advantages that mediation can bring to resolving disputes between separated parents and to bear these in mind when cases come before them which may benefit from mediation. I would also encourage judges to become familiar with the mediation services which are available in their areas.’

Details of the guide have been taken from the July 2014 issue of Family Law and made available ahead of print. The full guide is available to download below.
