Family law mediation is a specialist area designed to help separating couples sort through their issues to reach a mutually satisfactory solution, without having to go to court. At Mediations Australia Melbourne we have highly experienced practitioners on hand to help you and your ex-partner reach an agreement through the mediation process.
Melbourne Family Law Mediation Expertise
The team in the Melbourne office of Mediations Australia are nationally accredited in the area of family dispute resolution. Moreover, they also possess years of experience in family law practice, legislation and case law. Both elements ensure Mediations Australia’s practitioners have the necessary expertise to conduct mediations that lead to successful resolutions, ensuring people avoid the expense and stress of appearing in court.
The Mediations Australia Process
Not every situation in family law is suitable for mediation, particularly where there might be issues of domestic violence, for example. In order to determine whether a mediation process might work for your particular family law issues, contact our Melbourne family mediation lawyers for an initial consultation. We can help you work out what form of dispute resolution might work best in your circumstances and, if you decide to move forward, we can even contact your ex-partner to start their involvement in the process. In the end, trying to reach agreement through mediation is a quicker, less expensive and more rewarding experience for most people when compared with the costly and stressful one that comes with appearing in court.
Mediations Australia will make all the arrangements for conducting the sessions once you and your ex agree to the process.
Part of our role is preparing each party to mediation before it begins. We do this by giving you a comprehensive run-down of how the day will work and what is hoped it will achieve. Mediators can take many forms, from the traditional method of sitting across the table from each other while the trained mediator facilitates the discussion, to the ‘shuttle’ style where each of you sits in a separate room and the mediator conveys messages and offers back and forth between you in the quest to reach an agreement. If such an agreement can be reached, we can do the rest by making sure the agreement is formalised in writing and validated by the appropriate court. This will make it legally enforceable on both parties to the mediation.
