Trusted Mediators provides tailored solutions for each case. Through free legal help mediation, we assist families in reaching agreements that address their unique circumstances.



Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution that helps individuals and families resolve disagreements without having to go to court. In legal aid mediation, a neutral third party (the mediator) facilitates conversations between all parties in order to reach an agreement. The family mediator does not make any decisions about what should happen, but instead helps the parties communicate and come to a mutually acceptable solution


The benefits of mediation include: 

1. A quicker resolution to a dispute, usually in single sessions that can take from one to several hours when you attend mediation.

2. Lowered stress and expense, as both parties share the cost of the family mediator and need not go through costly legal proceedings. 

3. It is often possible to reach an agreement where both sides feel they have been heard and that their interests have been respected, even if no agreement is ultimately reached at the end of the process. 

4. Increased likelihood of compliance with any negotiated settlement achieved through family mediation as opposed to court-imposed rulings or settlements. 

5. Preservation of relationships between parties encouraging them to continue working together in future, if appropriate.


Mediation begins with joint mediation sessions between the mediator and your ex partner in which the mediator will explain the procedure and evaluate if the  family mediation service is appropriate for the situation. Family Mediators are trained professionals who act as a neutral third party to facilitate dialogue between family members. They will ask questions to identify any areas of disagreement and explore potential solutions that may be beneficial for all involved. The goal is to create a mutually agreed upon outcome that can be implemented without any court involvement.


Family mediation is available to those who are financially eligible and have a legal dispute with a partner, family member or an ex partner. This includes disputes regarding child access rights and other matters related to separation or divorce. In order to be eligible for legal aid family mediation, the applicant must meet the eligibility requirements. Legal aid services may also be available for difficult cases in situations where a child is at risk of violence or abuse.
