Fresh Start Family Mediation provides a safe, private and cost effective way for separating and divorcing couples to sort out disagreements. It is not relationship counselling or about trying to get you back together, instead we will focus on helping you to agree a plan to move the issues forward. Alternatively, we can provide you with a mediation certificate if that is all that you require.

We work across the Shropshire area from our meeting venues in Shrewsbury and Oswestry. We see clients from; Whitchurch, Shrewsbury, Telford, the Welsh Borders and Wrexham areas. Most of our meetings are now conducted via video conferencing, which are proving to be less stressful and more convenient.

We can assist you with; children’s arrangements (including Child Consultation / Child inclusive Mediation), financial matters or both, funded either through legal aid or private fees, working alongside your solicitor. If you are eligible for legal aid we can help you access free legal support from a solicitor to assist with the mediation process.

signpostWe are able to arrange:

  • Mediation Information and Assessment Meetings (MIAM’s)
  • Joint mediation sessions
  • Forms C100 or Form A (these now require a mediator signature when issuing court proceedings)
  • Legal documentation, such as: Mediation Outcome Statement, Open Statement of Financial Information (financial disclosure) and / or a Memorandum of Understanding

You will be in control of the process, mediation is about us helping you to make your own joint decisions in a private, supportive and informal atmosphere.

While it is true that going through divorce or separation can be a very difficult and distressing time, mediation is there to help.

Your life does not have to be an ongoing battle, we can help you find a new way forward.
