Before separating, you may never have heard of Mediation. This important process is demystified in this section with articles clarifying what Mediation is, what happens in a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting (MIAM) and how to write Parenting Plans. Mediation supports the key challenge in separation and divorce – communication, with one author describing mediation as putting “a break in the spiral of conflict”. Having a third person can help couples to discuss difficult topics, to behave non-defensively and to think about the long term.
