When a relationship, such as a de facto, ends, similar issues arise to that of separating married couples.

It is far from uncommon that separating couples will need to fairly divide jointly held assets at the end of a relationship.

…But We’re Not Really Family Lawyers
Here at Mediations Australia, our primary objective is to help separating parties in dispute come to a mutual agreement surrounding their dispute to move forward. In contrast to this, going to court is costly and particularly lengthy in duration; ultimately resulting in a ‘winner’ ‘loser’ dynamic. It isn’t uncommon that bitterness will remain long after the court process. Mediation, instead, aims to preserve the relationship between the two parties which is especially important when children are involved.
We Don’t Play Like Family Lawyers
If you are looking to take your family dispute to court, the chances of paying a minimum of $60,000, irrespective of ‘hidden’ legal costs are high. By way of comparison, deciding to go with the mediation process is far more affordable and will generally produce a workable result within a realistic timeframe so that both parties can move on with their lives. Here at Mediations Australia, our Wollongong team are upfront about our fees and we ensure no hidden legal costs are present. Our Wollongong family law mediators are advocates for using modern methods such as collaborative law – involves both parties agreeing beforehand, not to move the matter to court – to give both parties the best and economical chance of a successful outcome.
