Well today was my first one and although difficult to sit in same room as my ex I feel we have made progress. Far more progress than letters back & forth between solicitors. My outlook on it was it was free for me so I had nothing to lose. Me & my ex are not amicable & I did let my frustrations show however the mediator kept us on the right route & didn''t allow in appropriate behaviour from either of us. I hope this helps
i do feel it is sumwhat unjust that when one is claiming benefits they are entittled to free mediation.surely this creates a conflict initself wihen a relationship breaks down.i do not want to pay for the service while my wife is claiming and has it free!
