I've been advised to initiate a "Emergency mediation appointment"

Customer Question

I've been advised to initiate a "Emergency mediation appointment" due to my ex-partner refusing to let me see the children.
Can someone advise on who/where I contact in Wales to initiate this or maybe what form I need to send in to the court?

Just to be clear, I don't have to use a family mediator via the court, I can just use one of the above and then if the situation did go to court, they would accept the above mediation was the correct use?

Expert:  Harris replied 2 years ago.
Yes, if mediation fails then the mediator will provide you with a signed form to accompany any court application to show that you have attempted mediation.
