We’re here for you
Meetings are usually conducted via video conferencing or if requested we can meet you in person.
At Divorce Solutions SE we understand that going through a divorce can be an emotional and financial 'roller coaster'.
Traditionally it has been accepted as 'normal' for many couples entering into divorce to instruct separate solicitors and then spend time, energy and money arguing over who has what. In fact, the average cost of an acrimonious issue of this kind in the UK can be in excess of £15,000 per person.
There is now new hope for divorcing and separating couples. Due to changes in the law, it is compulsory for divorcing couples to attend a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting (MIAM). Exemptions are listed below*. This meeting must be conducted by an appropriately qualified person.
DIVORCE WILL NOT TAKE YEARS, BUT BE COMPLETED WITHIN MONTHS
CHILDREN INVOLVED ACHIEVE STABILITY IN A MUCH QUICKER TIME
WE OFFER A SPEEDY, LEGAL AND HIGHLY COST EFFECTIVE SERVICE
Divorce Solutions SE not only specialise in divorce and separation mediation, including MIAM's, but offer a fresh approach to divorce.
Instead of both parties hiring solicitors and arguing over finances, assets and most importantly, children; one neutral accredited mediator can help both parties reach agreement. This is then recorded in a document called a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which, in simple terms, encapsulates how finances, property/assets and pensions etc. will be split and if appropriate, how child arrangements will be dealt with. Once finalised, we advise both parties to take this agreement (MOU) to an independent solicitor to verify it and complete a Consent Order so that the divorce can be processed by the Court.

*The exemptions for attending MIAM's are:
You, or the other party, has made an allegation of domestic violence against the other supported by clear evidence, for example either a police charges or an injunction being issued within the last 12 months.
The application you want to make to the court relates to other family law matters which you are currently involved in.
An application to the court needs to be made urgently because there is a risk to the life or safety of the person who is making the application (the applicant) or his or her family (for example, their children) or his or her home.
The dispute is about money and you or your husband, wife or civil partner (the respondent) is bankrupt.
You and your husband, wife or civil partner agree and there is no dispute.
You do not know where your husband, wife or civil partner is.
You wish to make an application to the court but for certain reasons you don't want to tell your husband, wife or civil partner in advance.
You are currently involved with social services because there are concerns about the safety and wellbeing of your child or children.
You can't find a mediator within 15 miles of where you live, or you have contacted three mediators based within 15 miles of where you live and you are unable to get an appointment with any of them within 15 working days.
You or your partner cannot access a mediator's office because one of you has a disability. However, if the authorised mediator can provide the appropriate facilities then you will both still be required to attend the meeting.
A mediator shows on the court form that mediation isn't suitable, for example the other person isn't willing to attend a MIAM.
In the past four months you've tried mediation but it hasn't been successful. A mediator has to confirm this and state that mediation is not the best way for you to resolve your dispute.
You or your partner do not normally live in either England or Wales and therefore cannot be considered as habitually resident.
