Mediation Services

Mediation is a voluntary, confidential and private dispute resolution process in which a neutral person, the mediator, helps the parties to reach their own negotiated settlement agreement. The mediator’s function is to overcome any impasse and encourage the parties to reach an amicable settlement. Mediation has proven an outstandingly successful management tool for resolving difficult disputes. It is a means by which the parties can re-learn the basis of communication in which they can then resolve future disputes. This is particularly important in family disputes where invariably there are ongoing issues to be resolved including child custody among other matters.

Our mediation service is oriented towards family and relationship issues. Topics include (but not limited to) relationships, finances, workplace disputes, separation, divorce, parenting, succession and businesses.

The mediator will help parties to identify and clarify their needs, concerns and issues. The mediator will also help parties expand their options in order to achieve a mutually acceptable agreement. The goal is to identify and reach agreement on the solutions acceptable to all parties. Each party is recommended to seek independent legal and/or financial advice throughout the mediation process. If desired by the parties, a written agreement is prepared setting out all decisions and agreements made by the parties. Further details of our mediation service can be found at
