Family mediation services

PROVIDING A BROAD RANGE OF MEDIATION SERVICES, FROM THE HIGHLY COMPLEX TO THE MORE STRAIGHTFORWARD

Research shows that family mediation services can be a very effective way for families to resolve conflicts. It is proven to be faster, less costly and – crucially – less adversarial than divorcing through the courts. It can help a couple take control of their family’s future, making constructive decisions together rather than asking someone else to decide what should happen to their children or finances.

Blake Morgan’s family mediation service is run by two specialist solicitors who have 50 years of family law experience between them. Our solicitor in Oxford, Christine Plews, is accredited with the Family Mediation Council and holds a postgraduate certificate (OXON) in counselling, meaning our mediation services are second to none.

During the COVID-19 outbreak, we are currently unable to undertake meetings face-to-face but are keen to provide as much support as we can to clients during this difficult time. We are able to conduct MIAM appointments or mediation sessions via Zoom rather than having to be postponed. Please contact us.
