Why Mediate

Because 85% of cases settle – without going to court or big legal fees

Affordable

Family mediation is affordable and you don’t always need a lawyer. Average court costs per party are $50,000 – average mediation costs per party are $2,500.

Quicker

You get to resolve your dispute in a matter of days – not months. Don’t wait up to 18 months to get your dispute heard at a Brisbane family court.

Confidential

Mediation is confidential unless exceptions apply. Court proceedings are in public. You can negotiate, safe in the knowledge that you can speak without repercussion.

Compulsory

Need a Parenting Order – you must attend family dispute resolution (mediation) unless exceptions apply. If you don’t, you could be ordered to pay your ex-partner’s legal costs.

Positive Co-Parenting

Mediation improves communication between you and your ex- partner promoting, positive co-parenting.

About Us

We are a family law mediation practice that focuses on reducing conflict & helping you make your own decisions about the matters that mean the most – your children your property and your future.

Our mediation practice is based in Greenslopes Brisbane and was established to help separating couples reach parenting arrangements and property settlements, without the emotional and financial impact of court proceedings.

Encouraging communication, reducing conflict and achieving long – term positive outcomes for separating couples, is our key objective.

Through mediation, we can help you negotiate your own agreement with your ex-partner and even draft your agreement – either as a parenting plan or a legally binding consent order or binding financial agreement.

We have helped many families, achieve positive outcomes for their children, creating a future in which they can thrive.
