Family Law is time consuming, unpredictable, adversarial and expensive. Relationship breakdown is messy.
If you and your former partner can reach an agreement that avoids having to go to court you will save time and money and the decision you reach will be guided by you. You will have control over the process.
Mediation can help you and your partner come to an agreed settlement.
You can do this with or without lawyers. We work closely with mediators who will handle your case for a fixed fee and in an expeditious and considerate manner. Our mediators are happy for you and your partner to have your lawyer participate in the process if that’s what you need.
When you do reach a mediation agreement, our lawyers can formally draft the agreement for you, ensuring it is enforceable by the court and legally binding on both parties. We will tell you in advance exactly how much this is going to cost and how long it will take.
An effective mediation can mean your matter is resolved in weeks – for a fixed fee with legally binding documents – rather than the years and hundreds of thousands of dollars that could be wasted on a drawn-out court case. This gets you through the process with as little financial and emotional cost as possible.
