Parenting Mediation

Reach a co-parenting agreement quickly and effectively.

Our Mediators have assisted hundreds of families to address unresolved co-parenting issues and to reach long-lasting and workable Parenting Agreements. 

In a Mediation, an independent chairperson (the Mediator) hosts and guides a conversation between the parties to help them identify and assess options in order to reach an agreement about practical Parenting Arrangements and how their can be formalised.

What issues can I resolve at Mediation?

Typical issues dealt with during Mediation include:
  • Who the child/ren are to live with

  • How much time they are to spend with the other parent

  • Involvement of third parties including step-parents and grandparents

  • Allocation of responsibility for payment of additional child related expenses (not dealt with in a Child Support assessment)

  • Arrangements for special days and holidays

  • Arrangements for how you and your ex are to communicate with each other about the children

Lawyer Assisted Mediation

Where possible, we recommend parties attend Mediation with their Family Lawyers so that they can get on-the-spot advice and support about the issues discussed.

If only one of the parties has a Lawyer, the Family Lawyer can attend as long as the other party agrees.

Documenting Agreements

As you reach agreements about the relevant issues, we can note the agreements in a simple dot point document, or we can draft a Parenting Plan or Consent Orders setting out the Parenting Agreement for you to review and sign during Mediation, or for you to take to your Family Lawyer for further advice before signing. Please note that there are additional fees for our preparation of a Parenting Plan or Consent Orders.

If you Cannot Reach Agreement

If you are unable to reach agreement and are considering going to Court, we can issue a Section 60I Certificate that is required to be filed with the Court when you apply for Parenting Orders.
