Legal Aid is available to cover the cost of our family mediation services.

Legal Aid for family mediation is means-tested, so you have to provide evidence of your current financial circumstances to prove you’re entitled to receive it. You may be eligible 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 us on 0300 400 0636, or email

If you are eligible, Legal Aid for family mediation will cover all your individual mediation costs. It will also cover costs of the initial appointment and first mediation meeting for the other person, if they’re not eligible in their own right.

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