Mediation Voucher Scheme
Posted on 26th March 2021 at 11:34
The Ministry of Justice has developed a mediation voucher scheme, whereby a contribution of up to £500 per case/family to the mediation costs of a child arrangements case will be offered, encouraging people to seek to resolve their disputes outside of court where appropriate to do so.
The purpose of the scheme is to promote the benefits of mediation and divert matters where appropriate away from the family courts. The scheme will offer mediation participants a financial contribution of up to £500 per family towards the total costs of their mediation.
Vouchers can be granted to families where participants have attended a pre-mediation meeting (MIAM) from today (26 March) onwards, and will be paid directly to mediators who have registered to take part in the scheme.
Full details of the scheme, how to take part and how vouchers are allocated can be found on the FMC website.
