At Family Mediation North East we offer a cost effective service. There is no charge for people who qualify for legal aid. For those who are not eligible, mediation costs a fraction of going to court. Going to court is expensive and can often make conflict worse so choosing to work things out through mediation beforehand will keep your costs to a minimum.


Professional... fair and focused, sensitive and supportive, we listen and respond quickly to provide you with a highly professional service. As well as our many years of mediation experience, we carry full professional indemnity insurance.
