Are you wanting to move forward rather than be stuck in constant conflict, and reduce the impact of the separation on your children?

When conflicts are at an impasse, the intervention of an experienced mediator can help achieve closure and an amicable solution to disagreements.

Mediation is a structured process during which a neutral third person (a mediator) assists parties to reach agreements about the issues they disagree upon. Mediation can be used in many facets of life, and is commonly used to help separated couples, workplaces, extended families, neighbours and in commercial transactions.

With the help of the mediator, each party will first identify the issues that are important to them, then these issues are discussed in a respectful and meaningful manner.  Options to resolve the dispute are brainstormed, assessed and negotiated – then an agreement is reached.

What are the benefits of mediation?

Mediation saves you money – it avoids you paying expensive legal fees.

Mediation resolves the issue quickly – avoiding lengthy legal negotiations or court delays means you can move forward sooner.

Mediation preserves your relationships – you can respectfully resolve your dispute without becoming involved in an adversarial legal process.

Mediation is empowering – all are involved in joint decision-making, rather than being dictated to by a judge.

Mediation is customised – the process will cater to the unique circumstances of your matter and the needs of all individuals involved.

What is the role of the mediator?

The mediator will support you throughout the entire mediation process – from first meeting to preparation to joint session to agreement.

The mediator provides a structured and safe environment to assist you in having the difficult discussions with the other party(s).

The mediator remains neutral and non-judgemental and will not determine what the outcome will be.

The mediator will not provide legal advice, however will suggest when you should get advice about a particular issue.
