11. Is mediation confidential?

What you say in mediation is normally confidential, and the mediator will pass on information to someone else only if both of you agree. However, there are two situations where they might not keep to this:

  • If the mediator believes that someone (a child, for example) has been seriously hurt, or is at risk of being hurt, then the mediator should make sure that the police or social services are told.
  • If the mediator believes that you or your partner is benefiting or has benefited from the proceeds of a crime, the mediator will have to stop the mediation and report this to the authorities.

In general, what you say in mediation cannot be used in court later if mediation breaks down. However, this rule does not apply to financial information that you give, such as details of your income and property. This information can be used in later court proceedings and passed to lawyers.
