Criteria for assignment

Clients referred under the terms of the panel will include family mediation for:

  • Divorce,
  • Separation,
  • Dissolution of civil partnership,
  • Maintenance,
  • Custody, access, and guardianship,
  • Parenting.

The board says that it will assign cases having regard to its internally established criteria.

“These include the geographical location of applicants, length of waiting times, and the number on waiting lists,” it adds.
