If you live in Sydney and have a family law-related matter, Mediations Australia can help you. Whatever the nature of your dispute, our experienced mediation team are on hand to help you resolve the issue without resorting to the court process.
Sydney Family Law Mediation Expertise
Our Sydney team at Mediations Australia are not only nationally accredited as Family Dispute Resolution Practitioners but also possess considerable expertise from practising in the area of family law, including in-depth knowledge of current legislation and case law. We bring both of these vital elements to bear in conducting the mediation process to achieve successful resolutions which keep you out of court.
The Mediations Australia Process
If you wish to avoid the cost and overly adversarial nature of the court process, contact our Sydney mediation office for a preliminary consultation. This meeting will help work out whether mediation is suitable for your family dispute and, if so, what type of mediation will work best. If this method is determined as the best way forward, we will contact your ex-partner to discuss with them the benefits of trying to resolve the family dispute through mediation rather than the longer, more expensive and often more painful route of litigation.
If both you and your ex-partner agree mediation is the best path to a resolution between you, Mediations Australia will make the arrangements for the sessions to commence.
We will also prepare each of you before the mediation session takes place. There are many ways for a mediation to proceed, from facing each other across the table with one of our neutral third-party mediators conducting the session, to ‘shuttle’ mediation where each of you sits in a separate room and our mediator goes back and forward between them trying to assist both of you to reach an agreement. 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.
