Family mediators have responded thoughtfully, and in large numbers, to the FMSB’s consultation on MIAMs standards. The responses show there is a high degree of support for the introduction of the proposed standards, expectations and guidance. While there was near universal acceptance of the proposed high-level standards, there are some proposed expectations that have generated a large amount of debate which show that different mediators take different approaches to some issues. The responses also show that mediators broadly support the introduction of assurance measures and a willingness to comply with these, but there is a concern that these should not be unduly onerous.
A summary of responses is available here.
The FMSB is grateful to the FMC’s Member Organisations which submitted responses, and for their permission to publish them. The Member Organisation responses can be downloaded here:
