Mediators must make sure that you and your partner feel safe. So the mediator will check with each of you separately before and during mediation to see whether there is a problem of violence or abuse.

If you are worried about your safety or your children’s safety, you should tell the mediator. The mediator will probably say that you should see a solicitor (if you have not already done so). If you need a court order to protect you from your partner, your solicitor can help you apply for one.

If you do not want your partner to know your address or phone number, you should tell the mediator. You can also ask for separate waiting areas when you come to mediation discussions.

See ‘Further help’ for names of organisations that can help you if you feel you are at risk of violence from your partner.
