You may be eligible for legal aid for mediation if you are on a low income or not working, including if your financial circumstances have changed because of Covid19. We can help you start the assessment process before you book an appointment.

Call our mediation team on 0300 400 0636, or email

If you are ready to book an appointment you can go straight to our online booking page.

Legal aid for mediation cases helps families agree on arrangements where:

  • You’re getting divorced and therefore need to sort out financial arrangements
  • Child arrangements have broken down, and so you are not seeing your children
  • Any dispute following a family breakdown may end up in court.

At your initial family mediation appointment (the MIAM) you can ask about legal aid for mediation.

The mediator will discuss what issues need resolving. Some family mediation cases are eligible for but others are not.
