Our Resolution qualified and Family Mediation Council accredited mediator, Catherine Roblin, provides a full range of mediation services.

Catherine has successfully conducted numerous mediations involving issues relating to the arrangements of children and also a wide range of financial disputes.

Catherine, as well as being a trained mediator with FMC status, is also an approved Law Society Assessor of potential applicants to the Law Society Mediation Panel.

Passmores Family Mediation have the benefit of a Legal Aid Agency contract and are, therefore, able to provide mediation work on a legally aided basis subject to an assessment of financial means. Mediation is one of the few areas in relation to Family Law where Legal Aid remains available.

Catherine is qualified to undertake Mediation Information and Assessment Meetings (MIAMs) and to sign Court forms for proceedings to be commenced if mediation is an unsuitable means of resolving the dispute.


What does mediation involve?

Mediation is a voluntary process to help you and your partner resolve issues arising from the breakdown of your relationship; mediation is an excellent way to resolve matters relating to child contact and financial separation.

During mediation Catherine encourages positive discussions aimed at reaching an amicable settlement; Catherine will act as a neutral third party and will work to encourage positive discussions between the parties.

Catherine’s involvement will allow you to have control over the outcome; this is useful when there is a need to maintain an ongoing family relationship.

Initially Catherine will hold separate MIAMS meeting with both you and your former partner to discuss the process and what you can expect. If Catherine decides mediation is suitable, then a joint meeting will be held. If mediation is the best course of action, but you do not want to be in a joint meeting, another mediator can be involved, for separate co-meetings if that is more appropriate.
