A Guide to Mediation - MIAMs and Mediation Explained

Mediation has increasingly been recognised and used as a way of settling disputes when couples are separating or divorcing. This is a short film illustrating what happens in mediation and the preparation meeting, a mediation information and assessment meeting (MIAM).

Regular, positive contact with both parents is the best way to bring up children when parents separate. Tanya Victor went to mediation with the father of her daughter, Georgia, and talks about how it has improved life for all of them. John Hickman talks to his children everyday using FaceTime.
