Stone King supports scheme saving separating parents up to £500 off the cost of mediation

Stone King is supporting a Government scheme which will see separating parents able to claim up to £500 off the cost of mediation.

Under the scheme, the Ministry of Justice will provide contributions of up to £500 per family to resolve issues relating to children following parental separation.

Family mediation is a process by which an independent, professionally trained mediator helps parents work out arrangements for children and finances following separation.

Family mediator Caroline Fell said she welcomed the introduction of the scheme.

“This investment in mediation will help separated families agree solutions that are best for their children, ensuring that mediation is accessible to all and therefore helping families to resolve issues for themselves, without having to go to court,” said Caroline. 

Mediation can also be helpful when previous child arrangements need to change, particularly as children grow up.

Further information with regard to the scheme can be obtained by contacting Stone King on 0800 111 4336 or via the government website.
