Welcome to 1st For Mediation

Moving families forward - a company that puts YOU first!


You may be eligible for legal aid for mediation if you are on a low income, or not working, including changes in your finances from COVID-19. We can help you start this process before you book your appointment with us. Legal aid supports the costs of mediation to help encourage this process.

You may also be eligible for The Ministry of Justice's voucher scheme which will provide a contribution of up to £500 towards the costs of mediation, for the eligible cases, supporting people in resolving their family law disputes outside off court. 

To find out more, visit our Legal Aid & Voucher scheme page HERE.

What is family Mediation?
Family mediation is a process in which you find a solution both parties are happy with. Our qualified and fully trained mediator will help you to make a final agreement. Your thoughts are a very important part to this process.
Why choose Mediation?
A mediator is an independent and neutral negotiator, who is able to talk to both sides and who works for the benefit of the whole family. As there is just one mediator, he or she will have a clear idea of the feelings, wishes, hopes and fears of both parties. 
Will Mediation benefit me?
Mediation provides you with a service that is less stressful, less expensive and focusing on a solution for both parties. It is important for you to know that you and everyone involved in this process matters.
