Alternative Dispute Resolution in Redland
Our aim is always to resolve your family law issues as peacefully and cooperatively as possible. Depending on your situation, we offer mediation and collaborative law services so you can settle your matter without having to go to court, saving you money, time, and stress.
Our team includes trained mediators and collaborative lawyers with years of experience helping families settle disputes through Alternative Dispute Resolution.
Mediation is a process by which ex-spouses discuss matters such as divorce settlements, financial agreements, and arrangements about children under the supervision and guidance of a trained mediator.
The mediator does not advise the parties but guides and facilitates discussion, while helping to prevent any unnecessary conflict. Mediation usually results in positive outcomes as it allows couples to discuss issues in a calm environment, encouraging cooperation and compromise.
Any agreement you come to during mediation can be made binding by a court as a Consent Order.
Our trained mediators can offer you a professional mediation service in Redland.
Collaborative family law
Like mediation, collaborative law allows separating couples to discuss family matters and make arrangements in a calm, non-combative environment. The main difference is collaborative law is usually used for more complex matters and your collaborative lawyer will be present to advise you.
Collaborative law involves attending meetings with your collaborative lawyer, your ex-partner and their collaborative lawyer to come to make the decisions necessary to finalise your divorce.
Our collaborative lawyers have years of experience helping couples through divorce and dissolution, and we pride ourselves on the high-quality of our advice and support throughout the process.
