There has been lots of publicity about changes to the Legal Aid system, but  legal aid is still available for family mediation from Ministry of Justice approved organisations. South West Mediation is an approved organisation, and are the largest provider of family mediation in the West Country. At your first meeting the mediator can assess your eligibility for legal aid.

Mediation helps separating or separated couples with practical issues that need resolving before individuals can move on. These matters include where everyone is going to live, ongoing parenting arrangements, and sorting finances, including pensions and maintenance.

If you are going through separation or divorce and have unresolved practical issues, why not fix an individual meeting with one of South West Mediation’s expert mediators and work out your options? The mediator will assess your eligibility for legal aid on the spot and, if eligible, the mediation is totally free as is some limited legal advice alongside the mediation.

Even if you are not eligible for legal aid, many find that mediation is cheaper, quicker and less stressful than going to court.
