Finding a way forward for families

Private and Legal Aid Mediation

VICTORIA SCOTT is a family mediator based in Muswell Hill, North London, specialising in helping separating couples reach agreement. Qualified to undertake Mediation Initial Assessment Meetings (MIAMS), direct child consultations, privately funded and legal aid mediations. Victoria is perfectly placed to find a solution for you and your family.   Mediation is confidential, impartial and voluntary. It can help resolve disputes and conflict and clarify areas of confusion and frustration that often exist when couples separate. Mediation can save time and money by allowing the parties to reach a mutually acceptable and sustainable agreement together in their own timescale independent of the Courts. Victoria Scott Mediation specialises in helping resolve issues around property, assets, parenting after parting and supporting children of separating couples. Together you will explore and define key issues and work to identify acceptable solutions. I strive to make a painful situation a little easier and hope that rather than dread their mediation sessions clients will welcome the chance to be the best they can be for their own good and the benefit of their families.
