Abstract

Applauds the resolution of family disputes through mediation but argues the need for legal representation to resolve child disputes for those parents for whom mediation does not work or is not suitable. Considers the potential for injustices to occur where pressure is put upon couples to mediate given the alternative choice is self representation in court as a result of legal aid cuts
