Mediation in divorce and family proceedings

There are some circumstances in which mediation is inappropriate:

For example:

If your partner has been violent towards you or you are afraid he / she is likely to become violent.

If your partner lived more than 2 hours away from a mediation service, or if there is no mediator available in your area, or they cannot deal with your particular problem.

Also if you suffer from a disability or any other restriction on your ability to travel to see a mediator or for them to assist you then you will not be required to attend mediation.
