Statement from Aurora family mediation regarding Coronavirus COVID-19.
We are monitoring the situation and complying with government advice regarding Coronavirus. We wish to reassure our clients that our office is open. If you are booking in for an initial meeting (MIAMS) we continue to carry these out on Zoom or WhatsApp or similar unless a face to face meeting is requested.
In response to the government’s announcement confirming that the country has moved to Step 4 of the COVID-19 roadmap on the 19th July, we have amended our covid guidelines as follows:
We are now seeing clients for face-to-face meetings if both clients wish at our Hitchin office and our other offices on request. Otherwise we continue to see clients for mediation meetings online.
Where both clients wish to have a meeting face to face, to keep our staff and clients safe and well, we will be continuing to keep certain measures in place to do our part to help control the spread of Coronavirus. Wearing masks in communal spaces will remain for now, alongside hand sanitising stations and our heightened cleaning regimes.
We ask that if a client has tested positive or someone they have been in close contact with has tested positive for Coronavirus that they contact our admin department who will rearrange the appointment for a more suitable time or to mediate online instead.
We understand that everybody will be moving at different paces and have differing opinions on the easing of restrictions but in order to keep everyone well and happy we feel this is the fairest compromise and safest route forwards for now.
If you have any queries please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to help.
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.

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.
