Just Talk Mediation is a family mediation service based in Baildon near Shipley. It is dedicated to assisting couples from all over West and North Yorkshire who find themselves in dispute regarding the division of financial assets or issues regarding their children following the breakdown of their relationship. Whilst much of our work comes to us through referrals from family law solicitors increasingly we are being approached directly by couples who wish to mediate and reach agreement together before engaging the services of a solicitor to finalise matters, thereby saving uncertainty, time and legal fees.
The purpose of this website is to provide you with further information about our mediation service and how the mediation process can help you and your family.
Mediation Initial Assessment Meeting
If you would like to see whether the mediation process can help you and your ex partner or spouse to reach solutions together then Just Talk Mediation Service offers a fixed fee initial mediation meeting. The meeting will give you the opportunity to meet your mediator, Juliette Kinsey, and discuss your situation with her. It will also enable her to determine whether mediation is suitable for you and your ex partner or spouse. The assessment meeting can take up to one hour and the fee is £75 + VAT (£90 in total). Included within the fee is any approach Juliette may make towards your ex-spouse or partner about their willingness to attend mediation. Also included in this fee is the preparation of the compulsory M.I.A.M. form required by the courts in the event that it is decided that mediation is a suitable way forward or if the mediation breaks down. To find out more about the M.I.A.M form and why you need one in any event please visit our FAQ page.
