Family Law Mediation Townsville
When couples split up there are lots of issues to sort out. What you don’t want to do is end up in expensive and lengthy court action. Our Townsville team at Mediations Australia are here to help you avoid that experience. We bring experience and expertise to dispute resolution options that will prevent the need for court action.
Townsville Family Law Mediation Expertise
The important thing to know about our Townsville team at Mediations is that we are both nationally accredited family dispute resolution practitioners but also highly experienced family lawyers with expert knowledge of legislation, case law and family court practice. Not many law practices in Australia offer both of these areas of expertise.
The Mediations Australia Process
Next step? Contact our Townsville family mediation office for an initial consultation. At this meeting we discuss with you the various dispute resolution processes we offer and whether mediation is the best option for your specific matter. Once we have your agreement about the process we contact your former partner to involve them in the discussion about mediating the family dispute to the stage of agreement, instead of costly litigation.
Once both parties agree to go forward with dispute resolution, our Townsville team will schedule in the necessary sessions.
As part of what we do, both you and your ex-partner will be properly prepared for what to expect from the mediation process on the day. These days there are numerous ways to undertake mediation so before the day, we will help you decide whether you are both happy sitting at the same table during the session while an expert mediator helps create the conditions in which you can negotiate an agreement. Another option is a ‘shuttle’ mediation where you sit in separate rooms while the mediator negotiates the contested points back and forth until an agreement can hopefully be struck. If that stage is reached, we will draw the agreement up and have it validated by the appropriate court to make it legally binding on both of you.
