I feel like my children should be able to have their own say; can my children be involved in family law mediation?
There are specialist trained mediators who can include children in the process. This is usually for older children and we can advise you as to whether your circumstances may be suitable and help you find an appropriately trained mediator.
If the court is involved then the children’s views will be taken into consideration and the court uses the expertise of CAFCASS (the Children and Families Court Advisory and Support Service).
In very complex cases the court may even decide that the children should have their own representative in the proceedings (a Children’s Guardian).
“An excellent service, Tom was charming!”
