Further to the recent report of the governments's Mediation Task Force, the government has decided to allow the first single mediation session following a MIAM to be entirely funded by legal aid where one party is eligible and the other party is not.

The Civil Legal Aid (Financial Resources and Payment for Services) (Amendment)(No.2) Regulations 2014 will exempt non-financially eligible parties from the financial means test in respect of the first mediation session where the other party is financially eligible for legal aid and the first mediation session after the MIAM takes place on or after 3 November 2014.
