Face to Face Mediation
Family Dispute Resolution on the Gold Coast
Mediation offers a neutral space in which parents can discuss parenting and property issues with a view to developing a Parenting Plan or Property Agreement that best meets the changing needs of their family.
Mediation is a way for families to remain in control of their family’s future. You make the decisions. There are no huge legal fees or long court waiting times.
Uncoupling offers a fixed price mediation service all the while maintaining a high quality, personalized service. We listen to your concerns and provide information designed to assist you in reaching child-friendly parenting or property agreements. The whole process can be completed within a week if all parties are available immediately.
How It Works:
Sometimes people choose to engage in the Initial Consultation, the Intake & Assessment and/or Pre Mediation on the telephone or the internet for the convenience of time and travel. Both of these mediums offer you the same confidential quality service. Then both parties meet together for the FDR Mediation.
We expect that the mediation will be completed within the 3 hours allocated, however, sometimes, on rare occasions an additional mediation session may be required depending on the number of agenda items and progress made in the mediation session. This would incur an extra cost of $220 per hour including GST.
In some circumstances, the Mediator may assess your matter as ‘not appropriate for mediation’ and issue an S60i certificate. This may occur at any stage of the mediation process.
We strongly recommend you seek legal advice to understand your position and to ensure your parenting or property agreement is founded in current family law principles of ‘The best interest of the child’ and, in terms of property, ‘Fair and Equitable’.
