Choose Progressive Mediation – a better way to settle
Family Mediation Services
We established Progressive Mediation in 1997. Our primary aim is to provide a professional, affordable, accessible family mediation service for separating and divorcing couples in Bristol and Totnes and the surrounding areas.
Whether you are married or not the ending of a relationship inevitably poses problematic issues that need to be resolved. Often these are:
- Arriving at a fair and reasonable financial settlement, including division of assets, property, vehicles, savings and pensions
- Reaching agreement in respect of any children’s living arrangements, taking into account their needs and your circumstances including work commitments
- Ensuring that financial support takes realistic account of both parents’ circumstances as well as the child’s needs
Our confidential mediation service helps you to work together to resolve these, and any other issues without the considerable expense, stress and uncertainty of going to court allowing both parties to maintain control over the settlement of the dispute.
As part of our services, we offer a MiAM (Mediation, Information and Assessment Meeting) for a fee of £40. In this initial meeting, we will provide you with information regarding mediation and discuss other ways to resolve the issues arising from your divorce or separation without going through court; if you are considering going to court, it is now a legal requirement that a MIAM is attended first. Following the initial session, our competitive ongoing fees that are specifically geared to make family mediation accessible for all.
Legal Aid For Mediation
In addition to our MiAM service, we are able to offer legally aided mediation for those who are elegible, making our mediation services the most competitively priced in Bristol, you can find out if you’re eligible for Legal Aid here.
Parenting Coordination Services
From May 2018, we are able to provide parenting coordination services in both Bristol and Totnes. For high conflict, separated parents having a parenting coordinator to help to make arrangements and resolve conflicts on an ongoing basis can be invaluable. Find out more about our services here.
In addition to our mediation for couples, we also have experience in helping to resolve a range of civil disputes. We have specialist expertise in mediating inheritance disputes, family cases with an international dimension and disputes involving disability discrimination issues and are often called in to help on such cases across the country.
Our considerable expertise also enables us to provide a professional practice consultancy (supervision) service for other family mediators which can be very useful in ensuring your standards of practice stay high, developing ways of working and providing vital support.
