Course Overview

Due to public funding changes, clients are now legally required to seek mediation services before they can commence court proceedings.

From January 2018, clients must attend a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting (MIAM) to determine whether mediation can be used to resolve a dispute, relating to a child or financial matter for example, before an application to the court can be made.

During this highly practical session, lecturer Safda Mahmood will talk viewers through step-by-step how to complete the c100 form and will highlight the pitfalls to look out for.

This bite-size session will discuss key problem areas including:

·         Whether the court’s permission is required to make the application

·         MIAM requirements

·         The position with respondents, and others to whom notice is to be given

Consideration will also be given to capacity, jurisdictional issues and whether applications are being sought without notice or otherwise.
