Family Law Mediation Gold Coast
Family disputes arising from separation or divorce are not easy on anyone but if you’re in the midst of one and living on the Gold Coast, Mediations Australia can help. We are experienced family lawyers who focus on dispute resolution to help you find agreement on the crucial issues without needing to go through the expense and conflict of the court process.
Gold Coast Family Law Mediation Expertise
What sets the Gold Coast team at Mediations Australia apart is that we are both experienced family lawyers, with knowledge of family court practice, relevant legislation and case law, but also family dispute resolution practitioners with national accreditation. This is a fairly rare combination in Australia, and allows us to give clients a properly informed picture of how dispute resolution can work for them versus litigating their dispute through the courts.
The Mediations Australia Process
We start with an initial consultation where we discuss the various forms of dispute resolution we offer and which might work best in your circumstances. Provided you agree with our recommendations we can also involve your ex-partner and demonstrate to them the benefits of mediation when compared with court litigation. If both parties then agree to go forward with mediation, our Gold Coast office will make all the arrangements for it to take place.
At this stage we will prepare both you and your ex for the day by explaining how the mediation is conducted and what we hope to achieve. Both of you may have a preference for the form of mediation, whether that is sitting in the same room together while one of our family law mediation experts guides you through a discussion of the issues, or a ‘shuttle’ mediation where you each sit in different rooms and we go between both of you until an agreement can be reached. Whichever method works for both of you, the aim is to identify and air the important issues in dispute and help both of you work out a resolution. If an agreement can be reached, Mediations Australia will document the agreement and then get it validated by the relevant court so that it is legally binding on both parties.
