Have you read about MIAM or been told by a solicitor that you need one, but you are not sure what this is?
MIAM stands for Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting.
In short, a MIAM is a meeting with a potential mediator who will provide you with information as to what mediation involves and how it works and the choices available to you. This will allow you to make an informed decision as to whether mediation would be the best option for you.
The mediator will also consider whether, taking into account your individual circumstances, mediation is appropriate. The mediator can discuss any concerns with you at the MIAM.
