Family Mediation

Have you separated from your partner? Unsure how to work out children, property or financial matters? Are you arguing with your brother/sister or other family member?

Relationships are the foundation for a civilized society. Today, in the twenty-first century, almost half of all marriages in Australia end in divorce and many other permanent relationships break down.

These events are usually difficult experiences for those couples and their children. It is a time of great change and confusion, which creates uncertainty and distress for all members of the family. Families are faced with many issues:

  • What and how to tell the children;
  • Who will remain in the family home?
  • Who will be the resident parent?
  • What arrangements will be put in place for the parent wanting contact with the children?
  • How will the assets be divided?
  • Who pays child support and how much?

Our organisation can assist couples with these questions. We are federally funded by the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services & Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA) to assist couples to attend mediation to discuss their concerns, and reach a mutually acceptable agreement on financial and parenting issues. These agreements can be made into legally enforced Court orders.

Our team of family mediators are qualified in law and/or the social sciences and are skilled in helping couples reach agreements, and in providing them with resource materials on children’s matters and other information to assist at this difficult time.
