Family Law Mediation Perth
Family break-ups are hard. One thing most of us want to avoid in this situation is going to court. At Mediations Australia, our experienced family law mediation Perth can help you do this by facilitating a dispute resolution process that offers a path to a quicker, more affordable and less stressful outcome.
Perth Mediation Expertise
Our Perth family law mediation team hold national accreditation as family dispute resolution practitioners. They’re also experienced family lawyers, with a background representing clients in family courts, meaning they bring extensive knowledge of current legislation and case law to their roles. This is actually a fairly rare occurrence in Australia, with only the top echelon of lawyers having experience both in family law practice and in dispute resolution. It means we have the skills to help you achieve a successful resolution of your family law matter.
The Mediations Australia Process
Trying to litigate a family dispute through a court is not only expensive but it’s also stressful and more confrontational than a typical mediation. At an initial consultation with a member of our Perth team, we can provide more information on our various dispute resolution methods in order to decide which one might work best for your particular family law matter. Once your concerns and questions are addressed, we will even make contact with your ex-partner to get them involved in the mediation process so that you can both move forward towards a mutually satisfactory agreement, rather than the difficult path through the courts.
Provided you and your ex-partner agree that you will both make an effort to reach agreement through the meditation process, Mediations Australia will begin the arrangements to bring both parties together.
Once a mediation session is scheduled, our Perth family law mediation will take steps to prepare both parties for the day, with more detail on the procedure to be followed as well as the aims and goals of the meeting.
Mediation can take a number of forms. Parties to a family dispute might sit across from each other in the same room with a neutral person in the middle to facilitate discussion and negotiations between them, or if things between you and your ex are more tense, each of you might sit in separate rooms while the trained mediator conducts a ‘shuttle’ process, helping you both negotiate back and forth until the terms of an agreement can be worked out. The ultimate aim is an agreement that addresses the concerns of both of you and which you can live with moving forward. If this happens, Mediations Australia will formalise the agreement in writing and have it validated by the appropriate court so that it is legally binding on both parties.
