We have significant experience and expertise acting on a broad range of family law settlements and disputes by means of mediation and alternative dispute resolution.
Family law mediation and family dispute resolution provides parties with an opportunity to resolve every aspect of their separation in a non-adversarial, professionally supported environment.
Our usual approach to conducting family law mediations is evaluative, rather than facilitative. In other words, we actively apply our legal expertise to provide our mediation clients with an independent evaluation of the legal issues underpinning their dispute.
While we take a neutral and independent position in the negotiations, we will express a legal view as to whether we think that a position taken, or proposal made, by a person has merit or not.
We do not just sit on the sideline and convey proposals between the parties back and forth. We engage with the issues and offer tailored legal solutions that are practical and workable.
We provide mediation services in relation to any issue arising between separated couples, including financial settlements, parenting arrangements, child support and relocation disputes.
As part of our service offering, we are able to draft quality, legally-binding agreements recording the terms of settlement reached between parties at mediation, including Parenting Plans, Consent Orders, Financial Agreements and Binding Child Support Agreements.
We offer our family law mediation clients a fixed fee end-to-end package which includes the parties’ attendance at mediation and preparation of settlement documents recording the terms of agreement reached between the parties at mediation.
We have internal rooms and facilities at our CBD offices to conduct mediations involving multiple parties at no additional cost. Please telephone us to discuss our availability and professional mediation fees.
Both of our mediators are practising, specialist family lawyers who apply their legal expertise in the resolution of family disputes via the mediation pathway.
