Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a Solicitor if I go to mediation?

Ultimately yes. Whilst mediators can give you general information about the law and how the legal system works, they cannot give you legal advice.  You can engage a solicitor with whom you can consult throughout the mediation process.  At the end of mediation you will get a written summary of the decisions you have reached.  It should be borne in mind that this is not a legally binding document and you will need a solicitor to draw up a formal agreement or an Order for the Court to make it binding.
