It is very rare we are asked by a client if the mediator is accredited. This question should not be rare but a common one, you wouldn’t get a gas boiler fitted by someone that is an certified gas engineer. We strongly feel the same should apply to family mediators. At Family Mediation Centre Staffordshire we are happy to announce that every single one of our mediators is fully accredited. The Court application forms should be completed with the mediators accreditation number next to their signature, if this is not shown then the Court may not accept your application. It is important you check that the mediator you are seeing or the mediation service you speak to have accredited mediators.
