South Lakes Family Mediation are actively monitoring and responding to the evolving COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation and are following all guidance and advice issued by the UK Government, NHS and Public Health England.

Our staff are still working to deliver the same level of support and advice to our clients that we have always done. We are proud to see our staff rise to this challenge and embrace remote working. Over the coming weeks, we will be focussing on advising our existing clients and those with new enquiries over the phone.

Our staff are on hand to answer any questions that you have on the issues above, or anything else that is affecting your business or family. For those of you who are currently involved in mediation proceedings along with new clients we are following the recommended guidelines but are also being proactive in our approach. We are still offering mediation services to our clients with telephone meetings with us and to send paperwork into the Barrow office by post rather than by hand.

South Lakes Mediation

Separating from a partner can be a distressing time. Mediation is there to allow you to discuss practical matters in a neutral environment, and reach agreement in a calm and controlled manner, where you keep control of the process. Our mediators are completely impartial and are specially trained in assisting couples to agree on issues caused by the separation, whether that is the financial implications or arrangements for the children, or both.


The role of a mediator is to assist you both in resolving the issues you have, and not to give specific advice to either party. Our mediators are able to provide general legal information to the both of you within the mediation process where this is appropriate.


Mediation works well for a wide variety of people but it is most beneficial for those who are willing and able to negotiate with each other in a positive spirit, despite the separation. Mediation is useful when assessing the available options or the following:
