We aim to work with the families to resolve parties concerns and disputes surrounding parenting or children matters or the separation of the families assets as quickly and efficiency as possible.
Our process is unique. We pride ourselves on our tailored approach to each individual family.
We know that no two families are alike and as part of our process we get to know about your children, your concerns, fears and goals for the future.
We conduct mediation all over Australia.
We are able to utilise rooms to accommodate the parties needs all across the country and have appeared in several states mediating disputes.
As part of our process we meet with the parties individually to discuss your concerns and to learn about your desired resolution and the road blocks that have prevented you from being able to communicate with your former partner to date.
If appropriate we will then meet for the purposes of mediation. This process is bespoke and may be different for each family.
Sometimes additional meetings are required before mediation and that is perfectly normal. Depending on the issue that needs to be resolved we may need to see each other more than once prior to mediation.
Not all separation is amicable.
It may be that there has been family violence during the marriage, one of the parties still feels very hurt by the end of the marriage, or the parties are just unable to communicate face to face.
Each persons separation journey is different. You will see from the chart below that the process for navigating a separation is complex.
As a result sometimes shuttle mediation is appropriate.
In this type of mediation, the parties are placed in separate rooms and the mediator travels between the parties obtaining each parties instructions.
Encourages a resolution between the parties and allows them to communicate in a respectful and safe environment.
Can provide the parties with orders that can be lodged with the Family Court providing you certainty and clarity for the future.
Allows the parties to have control over their separation and their lives making the resolution reached the best approach for their family.
Resolution that is unique, bespoke and can fit in with the parties.
