Family Law Mediation Geelong

Family break-downs are fairly common. However, there is little doubt that they are an emotional and stressful time for up to 50% of Australian families who endure them. To minimise the stress involved, one thing most of us want to avoid is going to court. Here at Mediations Australia, our experienced Geelong family lawyers can help you do just this by facilitating not only a methodological resolution but a prompt and economical approach to your legal matter.

Family Law Disputes

At Mediations Australia, our team of Geelong mediators are experienced in assisting clients with devising an effective legal plan that best tackles their individual needs.

Section 601 Certificates

According to Australia’s Family Law Act, each party to a separation must obtain a section 601 certificate that demonstrates a willingness on both accounts to settle their differences through a systematic resolution procedure such as mediation. Once this has been approved, a Parenting Order can be lodged to the court. As part of our legal service, our Geelong team can arrange this certificate for you.

De Facto Relationship Disputes

In the eyes of Australian law, de facto relationships and marriages are essentially the same. On the condition that you and your ex-partner were in a dependant relationship for two or more years, and have agreed to separate, our Geelong mediators can help you extricate the relationship with minimal stress via mediation.

Financial Agreements

Sharing assets and liabilities are a given in any serious relationship. However, working out how to appropriately divide them in an event of a breakup can pose challenges. Here at Mediations Australia, our Geelong mediators will empower you and your ex-partner to arrange a joint financial agreement which is considered reasonable among both parties.

Property Settlements

When it comes to property settlements, our Geelong mediators can help you come to a legally binding agreement suitable to what is no doubt your most valuable asset. By undergoing the mediation process, you are instantly granted a trusting environment that will enable both a successful and practical outcome for both parties.

Geelong Family Law Mediation Expertise

As nationally accredited family law practitioners, our Geelong family mediators obtain experience in all areas of family law, providing you with the very best chance of success. By following this paradigmatic approach, our Geelong mediators can help you achieve a consensus that ensures both parties are kept out of the family court.

We Are Family Lawyers

Our Geelong mediators are renowned for providing each and every client with a personalised legal service, tailored exactly to the nature of the family dispute at hand. Founded by a multi-award-winning law firm, Mediations Australia aims to deliver each legal resolution in a way that eliminates the likelihood of going to court.

But We’re Not Really Family Lawyers

At Mediations Australia, we attend to each legal matter with a client centric approach. Meaning that our ultimate objective is to help both parties in a dispute come to a shared understanding of strategies to eliminate further conflict so that everyone can get on with their lives. With this process proving itself as a ‘quick and easy’ solution, going to court, by comparison isn’t favoured. Therefore, the perceived ‘winner’, ‘loser’ entitlements often handed out in court and the remaining animosity can be avoided completely.

We Don’t Play Like Family Lawyers

Choosing to take a family dispute to court can often cause a financial burden on both parties. To take a legal matter to court, the minimum cost is $60,000 without inclusion of other “hidden” legal fees. By comparison, mediation is a far more economic choice and outputs a systematic resolution in a timely manner. Our Geelong mediators pay particular attention to modern methods of law such as collaborative law whereby it is agreed by both parties beforehand not to move the matter up to the family court. This gives each party a fair and affordable chance of a successful outcome.

The Mediations Australia Process

Are you ready to pursue the mediation process? Our Geelong family mediation office are easily contactable and can arrange a time for an initial consultation. This consultation will expand upon the various dispute resolution processes our mediators offer and whether going ahead with mediation is the best option for you. Once you have lodged your agreement, we will contact your ex-partner to invite them into a discussion regarding mediating the family dispute until both parties reach an agreement.

If both parties agree to pursue the dispute resolution via mediation, our Geelong team will pencil in times for future sessions.

Keeping to our customer centric mission, both you and your former partner will be thoroughly prepared for what to expect throughout the duration of the mediation process.
