Our Family Solicitor in Middlesbrough explains;-

Mediation is not suitable for all cases and agreement will not always be reached. The individual circumstances of every case will need to be addressed to decide how to proceed if mediation is not suitable, or fails to reach an agreement.

It may be at this stage that further negotiations can be undertaken via solicitors or the case may require court intervention to reach an agreement.

Neither person is allowed to use the content of the mediation sessions as evidence in legal proceedings, if mediation fails and the matter goes to court. The discussions at mediation remain confidential and this information will not even be disclosed to the parties’ solicitors. This is why it is essential that you discuss matters with your Family Solicitor and receive advice throughout the mediation process.
