The MIAM is not just to provide information on mediation. It is a forum in which litigants can be signposted to any relevant support they may need, for example drop in clinics being run by the local court or Resolution group, local support services or family consultants, as well as to online material such as the Cafcass website. Attending a MIAM is a compulsory requirement3 before anyone can make an application to the court for certain financial remedy orders4 or certain private law applications relating to children5, unless a MIAM exemption or a mediator's exemption applies6. The application must therefore contain or be accompanied by confirmation that either the applicant has attended a MIAM or that a MIAM exemption is applicable7.
