The Ministry of Justice have announced that Legal Aid is to be extended so that where one party to a mediation is financially eligible for Legal Aid both parties can do the mediation with no charge. At the moment the party who is not financially eligible has to pay his/her share of the costs. This is likely to make more people willing to undertake mediation although some would say it doesn’t go far enough.
Wolferstans offers a mediation service and can undertake mediations for clients who are legally aided and privately paying. We offer fixed fees for those who have to pay.
