Family Mediation Choice Falmouth is glad to see the £500 voucher programme extended.

June 28, 2022


Family Mediation Choice Falmouth is glad to inform that the voucher programme for $500 has been extended by the government until March 31, 2023. This decision was made this week. They recently allotted an additional £5.4 million in order to demonstrate their continuous commitment to family mediation in the hopes of resolving family issues involving children. Since it was first introduced in April 2021, the voucher programme has been beneficial to over 8,400 different families so far.

Instead of incurring the time, money, and stress of going to court, the programme assists parents or grandparents in engaging in Mediation Falmouth in order to negotiate the arrangements that will be made for their children.

The government, the judiciary, and the courts are all aware of the fact that the majority of disagreements over the care of children are best addressed either directly between the parents or via the use of Family Mediation Falmouth. An application to the court should only be made as a last option or when there are particular concerns that need the power of a court to handle them, such as in situations where there is a high danger of harm coming to a child.

Before any hearing about the custody of the children begins, have a look at our post titled "Will it seem bad if I refuse to go to mediation?" for more information on how the court regards family mediation.

In most cases, you will be required to have participated in a Mediation Falmouth Information Assessment Meeting (often abbreviated as an MIAM) with a view toward family mediation in advance of filing a lawsuit in a court of law. Even though there are 15 ways to avoid having to attend an MIAM, the vast majority of court petitions will still require attendance at one. Although it does not cover the cost of your MIAM sessions, the government voucher plan contributes £500 toward your combined family mediation sessions. Family Mediation Choice has agreed to manage the scheme on your behalf and is a participant in the programme.
