Mediation is an increasingly popular way for people in a dispute to stay out of court and resolve their differences by taking control of the process themselves. This is particularly the case in family disputes that arise when a relationship, either married or de facto, breaks down. It’s this area of the law that Mediations Australia in Adelaide specialises in, our expert practitioners widely experienced in helping ex-couples in dispute come to a resolution of their issues through the mediation process, whether about children, property or financial assets.

The Mediations Australia Process
Get in touch with the Adelaide team’s family mediation lawyers for an initial consultation on which form of dispute resolution might work best to help you and your ex-partner reach an agreement on the issues in dispute after your separation. Mediations Australia will bring your ex-partner into the mediation process by emphasising the benefits of the method as faster, less expensive and less confrontational than attempting to resolve the issues in court.
Once you both agree to mediation, we will help ready each of you for the day by explaining how the process works and what it seeks to achieve. There are many ways mediation can work, from sitting opposite each other and working through the issues while guided by a trained mediator, to a ‘shuttle’ approach where the mediators goes back and forth negotiating between each party seated in separate rooms until an agreement can be reached. If the outcome is successful, Mediations Australia will document the agreement in writing and have it validated by the relevant court. By doing so, the outcome of the mediation is then binding on both parties.
