About Us

Norfolk Family Mediation Service is a charity dedicated to limiting the pain and cost of divorce, separation and family disputes.

We know the breakup of any relationship is painful and difficult, especially if children are involved. With the support of a friendly, professional mediator, we can help you and your ex come to an agreement by offering a safe, impartial place to discuss the terms of your divorce or separation. We aim to help you agree on the things that really matter, such as who will pick the kids up from school, who will have them in the holidays, and most importantly, how they will spend time with both parents. We can also help you decide how to split property and finances fairly. As mediation costs less than £200 per session, and is free if you are eligible for Legal Aid, it can be a cheaper, less stressful alternative than a battle through the court.

Splitting from a partner is never easy, but mediation can help you find a way forward. If you are going through separation or are experiencing child contact issues and want support, get in touch today.

Our charity

Norfolk Family Mediation Service is a registered charity and a not-for-profit organisation.

We have been helping families through divorce and separation for over 30 years and are proud to offer a caring, professional service to those in need. We pride ourselves on providing a client-centred service and on putting children first. We strongly believe that mediation can help families through difficult times, helping separated couples build a new relationship based on fairness and respect, so that they can move forward and provide a stable, happy future for their children.

Norfolk Family Mediation Service is pleased to work with other organisations to help support families in need. If you are a business or organisation who would like to work with us please get in touch on admin@norfolkmediation.co.uk or by calling 01603 620588 – we’d love to hear from you.

Our team

Our mediators are some of the most experienced in the county, offering a wealth of knowledge and a caring, professional approach.

All our qualified family mediators have experience of working with children and families undergoing the stress and trauma of divorce and separation. Their backgrounds include law, social work, education, and probation work. All are members of the Family Mediators Association or National Family Mediation and work to the agreed Code of Practice of the Family Mediation Council. Mediators are specially trained in resolving emotive issues such as residence and contact with children. They are experienced in handling conflict and in protecting the interests of anyone who feels vulnerable or disadvantaged during divorce or separation discussions.

Mediators will also help you sort out the separation of your finances, whether you are married, living together or in a civil partnership. Divorce and separation can involve a number of different issues and mediators' extensive training includes speaking with children, resolving financial matters (including pensions), understanding cultural differences and how the fear of domestic abuse can affect decisions.
