Family Law Mediation Cairns
If you live in Cairns and are going through a family break-up, Mediations Australia can guide you through this difficult time without the need to go through the costly and stressful experience of going to court.
Cairns Mediation Expertise
The difference with our team at Mediations Australia is that they are both highly trained, nationally accredited dispute resolution practitioners and also experienced Cairns family lawyers, with knowledge of relevant legislation, case law and advocacy in court. Our Cairns team bring both of these strands together to make resolving your dispute to the satisfaction of both parties before it gets to court an absolute priority.
The Mediations Australia Process
Our process begins with an initial consultation where we will discuss the various forms of family dispute resolution available and which might work best for your circumstances. If we gain your trust and agreement that this is the best way to deal with the dispute, we will then contact your former partner to also gain their agreement that resolving all family issues through mediation is preferable to the more costly and uncertain option of litigation.
With the agreement of both parties, we will organise the times and dates for mediation to take place. This process will also include preparing each of you ahead of the scheduled session about how it will be conducted on the day. Dispute resolution can be done in a number of different ways. Perhaps you’re comfortable sitting at the same table as your ex with our trained meditator in the middle to facilitate the discussion of the issues. In other situations, particularly if there is any suggestion of domestic violence or the relationship is uncivil, we can conduct a ‘shuttle’ mediation where each party is seated in a separate room while our mediator goes back and forward to try and find areas of agreement. Our speciality is finding the method that works best for both of you in the quest for a workable resolution. Should an agreement be decided, Mediations Australia formally documents the agreement and will then have it validated by a court so that it is enforceable on both of you.
