How to find a Mediator in Malta

Malta's Mediation Centre provides the parties with a list of mediators duly accredited by the Centre. Whether in the case of a voluntary mediation or one that is referred to the Centre by the court or by law, a mediator is selected by the disputing parties from the list of accredited mediators, provided the person chosen is mutually acceptable to all the parties to the dispute. If the parties do not agree on the choice of a mutually acceptable mediator, the Centre will appoint as mediator the person whose name is next on the list of approved mediators.

In family mediation, parties can either select by mutual consent a mediator of their choice from a list of persons appointed by the Minister responsible for Justice for that purpose, and in this case the parties bear the costs of mediation themselves, or the Court assigns a mediator, on a rota basis, from the list of persons appointed by the same Minister to act as court-appointed mediators, in which case the fees due to the mediators are paid by the Registrar, Civil Courts and Tribunal.

For the time being, an electronic register of mediators does not exist as yet. However, in case of queries you can contact the Centre through the Registrar at Malta Mediation Centre, Palazzo Laparelli, South Street, Valletta VLT 1100.

To contact the Registrar you can call the following number: +356 21231833 or e-mail: Link opens in new
