If you make an application to the court about some family issues you’ll need to complete a C100 form confirming you’ve been to a MIAM or giving the reasons for not attending.
The form lists the reasons why you might not need to go to a MIAM before going to court. This might be because there are safety issues, such as where domestic violence or child abuse are involved.
If your case is not suitable for mediation you will still need to show the judge you’ve considered it by filling in a C100 form. Click here to download the form
