All about Mediation Information Assessment Meeting (MIAM)

A MIAM is a Mediation Information Assessment Meeting. The purpose of a MIAM is to provide information about mediation and to assess whether mediation is a suitable way for the parties to reach an agreement, given the circumstances of a particular case. Each party will attend a consultation, on their own, and will have the opportunity to tell the mediator about any issues they wish to resolve through mediation. Information on what to expect from the mediation process will be provided and the mediator will assess suitability based on the information given. If both parties then agree to engage in mediation, a joint session can be arranged.
