Family Mediation

Family Dispute Resolution or Divorce Mediation

What is Mediation?

Mediation (also now as Family Dispute Resolution or Divorce Mediation) is a better approach to end arguments between separating families or couples that are divorced. With the help from professionals you can move on without having to go to court.

Why choose Mediation?

Mediation is a low-cost, practical way to help mediate your dispute by using FEDOROV Family Lawyers to organise for the agreement that is reached to be drafted on the spot so that you can move on with your new life immediately.

 

Some family relationship centres in Australia can have you waiting up to 4 months. But at FEDOROV Family Lawyers we can book you in for your first mediation session within 7 days.

 

Experienced in the intricate laws of children’s matters, property settlement, and domestic violence, our family mediators can help you reach a compromise with your former partner on the division of assets and liabilities. Without eroding your property pool with expensive legal fees.

The family mediation process is voluntary and confidential, where both can discuss issues to work out arrangements for children, finances, and property with an impartial mediator in a safe and neutral place.

 

The mediation will guide you both on how to build a solid parenting plan to eliminate endless disagreements and arguing.

 

If you are a separated couple that already have set parenting plan and who gets what assets, then you might be able to skip Family Mediation and we can simply prepare your agreement for a fixed fee.

 

So, settle it now. Choose Family Mediation to let your voice be heard and reduce the emotional and financial problems. In as little as ONE day.
