Our expert Mediation lawyers will guide you through the mediation process, providing a compassionate and streamlined alternative to court battles, so you can find resolution and move forward with confidence.
These benefits highlight why Family Law Mediation is recognised as a preferred method for resolving disputes in a more amicable, efficient, and cost-effective manner.
Our qualifications and professional memberships include:
Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) process where parties involved in a family law dispute meet with a neutral third party, called a mediator, to work towards reaching a mutually acceptable agreement.
A mediator is an impartial third party who facilitates discussions and encourages communication between the parties. Unlike court proceedings, where a judge imposes a decision, the parties control the outcome in mediation. The mediator helps parties identify the issues and works towards a resolution that is acceptable to all parties involved.
Call or email us and we will arrange a time for an introductory call to discuss whether our mediation service is right for you. We will then schedule a mutually convenient date and location for your Mediation. The mediation can be in person or via videoconference. We can facilitate the mediation at our Erina office free of charge.
We will send you information about your mediation and our Mediation Agreement. Once you sign and return the Mediation Agreement, we will schedule a time for your 1:1 intake session with Kate O’Grady.
Each party will have a 1:1 meeting with Kate O’Grady prior to the joint mediation. During this meeting Kate will get to know you and will seek to understand what is important to you and what you are hoping to achieve from the mediation. This meeting usually lasts up to 1 hour.
The mediation will be conducted by Kate on the agreed date and time, either in person or via videoconference. Kate will assist you to resolve your family law matter, without the need for future conflict and costly and time-consuming court proceedings.
If you are able to reach an agreement and resolve some or all aspects of your matter on the day of the mediation, Kate will assist you to document the agreement, with the assistance of your lawyers.
In the unfortunate event you aren’t able to reach an agreement, Kate is able to issue a s60i Certificate. This is the document you will need to file with the Court to show you attempted to resolve your matter, prior to starting a Court case.
