Aurora Family Mediation works with couples and families in the process of separation or divorce to help them find the most amicable, cost-effective solution possible. Whether you are married or cohabiting, with or without children, we can help you.

We are trained family and divorce lawyers and mediators. Nicolette Zarka and Joy Burden are both  FMC Accredited mediators (FMCA).  Nicolette Zarka,  and Joy Burden are recognised by the Family mediation council ("FMC") to carry out mediation.   Not all family mediators are recognised by the FMC.  We are recognised to carry out Mediation information and assessment meetings ("MIAMS").  We understand that when a relationship breaks down it is a stressful and difficult time for everyone involved.  We will work with both of you providing a safe, secure environment where you can discuss your issues calmly and we will help you find the best solution possible.


We offer Legal aid for family mediation in our Hitchin and Milton Keynes Offices (public funding).  Speak to us if you think you may be eligible for this funding. You would not have to pay for mediation if you obtain Legal aid.  We are Members of the Family Mediation Voucher Scheme whch means that we can obtain funding towards your mediation if you would like to talk about your children for some or all of the mediation.  This covers up to £500 of the cost of mediation and is not means tested. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/family-mediation-voucher-scheme

Why choose us?


At Aurora family mediation we provide a completely personal confidential service. We understand that no two couples will have exactly the same problems. We know that you will both be having a difficult and upsetting time and we work with you to find the best solution for you, to suit your timescale and in a cost effective way.

As a mediator with over 19 years experience in mediation and recognised by the FMC Nicolette Zarka is also a qualified lawyer so she and her team are in the unique position to be able to provide you with not only the best mediation service but combine it with our knowledge of the legal areas surrounding separation. Aurora family mediation is completely customer focused.  Once you have decided you wish to proceed we offer a speedy first appointment and an efficient service.  We can also offer you  out of hours and weekend appointments.


Many people come to mediation because they would like to work out their arrangements together with input from an impartial specially trained mediator. We help you focus discussions and give information where this may be of use.  At Aurora family mediation we explain the process in an initial meeting in which we take basic information from you and prepare for a first full meeting.  We are happy to speak to you on the telephone to answer any questions about the process free of charge.
