Family mediation is a voluntary process. The Courts in Gibraltar do encourage mediation in cases where there is a real possibility that mediation will assist the parties to resolve or narrow down their differences. There are various legal practitioners who are qualified mediators. They can be instructed to mediate in family disputes. In addition, the Family and Children Team of the Social Services also undertake mediation with parties that are referred to them by the Courts. There is no legislation on family mediation.
There is no website on which a list of family mediators can be found nor is there one that provides information on family mediation or mediation in general.
