Legal aid for family mediation
If you are currently receiving any of the following benefits: Income support / Income-based JSA / Income-based ESA / Guarantee Credit / Universal Credit, then depending upon your financial position, we should be able to offer your MIAM appointment under the legal aid scheme.  If you do qualify then it will be at no cost to yourself. If you work, depending upon your earnings and savings, you may still qualify for legal aid. To clarify this, please visit the online legal aid eligibility check here or contact us on 01274 732768.

Information for solicitors

Once your client’s referral form is received at our office we will contact your client to set up a MIAM. If they intend to apply for legal aid, they will have to attend with their award letter (less than 6 months old).
