Do I have to go to mediation if I want a divorce?

Civil Partnership - Family Separation - DivorceNo. You do not need to go to mediation before applying for a divorce. If however you wish to apply to court for an order about the children or the finances, as a result of the divorce, then unless you are exempt from going to mediation or there is an emergency, you will need to have a Mediation Information Assessment Meeting with a mediator, before you can apply to court to seek an order.
