The family mediation voucher scheme is a time-limited scheme, designed to support parties who may be able to resolve their family law disputes outside of court.


The Government has set up the scheme in response to COVID-19 to support recovery in the family court and to encourage more people to consider mediation as a means of resolving their disputes, where appropriate.


To support this, a financial contribution of up to £500 towards the costs of mediation sessions will be provided to eligible cases.

From 1st April 2021 Family Mediation North East will be authorised by the Family Mediation Council (FMC) to take part in the voucher scheme.

On attendance at your MIAM, the mediator will assess the issues which you seek to resolve to see if they are suitable for mediation and meet the eligibility requirements for the voucher scheme. If neither of you are eligible for legal aid, you will still have to pay for the MIAM.
