Welcome to Let's Talk Mediation
Let's Talk are experienced Family Lawyers, who are specially trained as Family Mediators, to ensure that the very best skills are available to you.
Mediation is all about talking. Its success is so well recognised by the Courts and the Government as a positive alternative to litigation that since April 2014 it has been compulsory to attend a MIAM (Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting) before you can apply to the Court. It is a forward thinking and constructive approach to your difficulties. The main aim is to keep you out of Court, and to save time, stress and money. The other main focus is to help you to reach your own solution to the issues you are currently facing and to try and make communication between you easier. Mediation provides a neutral forum for you to air your views.
Our purpose is to remain entirely neutral and independent and to provide you with support and guidance as to the law and your future. Our Family Mediators have been awarded a Mediation Contract by the Legal Aid Agency which means that we can undertake publicly funded cases as well as private. If you are eligible for Legal Aid, the whole mediation process for you will be completely free. Legal Aid remains available for family mediation, despite being severely restricted for solicitors' advice and assistance.
Mediation can take place at various locations in Somerset including Bridgwater, Taunton, Yeovil, Chard and Ilminster.
