What is a MIAM?
Since April 2014, there has been a requirement that mediation is to be explored before the issue of Court proceedings in respect of both financial and children matters.
MIAM stands for Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting, which is the initial meeting you will have with a mediator. At the initial meeting, the mediator will be able to discuss with you the process of mediation, and how it would be able to help in your circumstances.
If you decide not to continue into mediation or if it is not suitable in your particular circumstances the mediator will then sign the required Court form to evidence that you have explored mediation, and this form needs to be submitted to the Court with your Court application.
