M.I.A.M.s and Family Disputes

MIAM or MIAMs is the name for the first meeting in a particular type of mediation for family disputes, but it has come to be used as shorthand for the start of the whole process of mediation for family and children issues which are potentially headed for the court process.  

Call to arrange a MIAM as the first step on your road to a successful mediated solution.


After your MIAM we'll normally invite the other party to attend and then once both have agreed to mediate we can arrange your first joint session quickly and at your convenience.

At Northwest Mediation we help to avoid extending the length of time a dispute is ongoing and aim to resolve matters quickly and efficiently at significantly lower cost than going to court
