Behind closed doors, in more than 500 locations across England and Wales, a network of National Family Mediation (NFM) services are meeting separated couples attempting to resolve their disputes over money, children and property - without a courtroom battle.
With privileged access to the private world of family mediation, this BBC Two documentary series will provide a unique insight into an element of modern British family life rarely seen by others.
With NFM delivering an average of 16,000 mediations per year and 89 percent of cases closing successfully*, it can be an intense but effective process - as the separated couples make plans together, face-to-face, with the help of a skilled mediator. Using a hybrid of rig and crews between mediation sessions and at home, we'll see how families deal with the practical and emotional reality of the changes they agree upon.
