Our Mediation Facilities
Perth Mediation Facilities – Bodekers Family Lawyers and Mediators
Attend mediation in relaxing facilities between the river and the sea. Our Perth mediation family law practice now has a mediation suite. You can hold your mediation or mediation style conferencing at these facilities.
Mediation is an alternative to the Family Court making orders for your family matters. Litigation, or going to court, can be expensive, timely and stressful. While mediation is focused on communication and reaching agreement between the parties.
Perth Mediation Facilities – What is mediation?
Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution. It aims to assist two (or more) persons to solve their legal problems and reach an agreement together. These persons are usually a separating husband and wife or de facto couple. Further, mediation can include other family members, such as grandparents.
Mediation may address child custody and support, property settlement, spousal maintenance, relocation, and more. A mediator tailors your session towards your family law case. They consider your family law matter and create a just and equitable solution.
Mediation does not mean depriving yourself of your entitlements. It involves considering both sides
Relationships Australia lists some of the benefits associated with mediation:
– avoids the delays and expenses that come with litigation
– promotes co-operation and communication between the parties. this can be useful in parenting matters
– parties have influence in the decision-making process
– less stressful and traumatic than going to court
– a more personal and accountable means of conflict resolution. people are less likely to breach agreements that they – have made themselves.
Perth Mediation Facilities – What does mediation do?
Mediation aims to reach agreement between two or more parties. The parties involved reach this agreement outside of court.
However, they can turn this agreement into orders in the Family Court of Western Australia. Therefore, you can have peace of mind knowing that a court order supports your agreement. This can be useful in financial and child custody matters. It reduces the risk of one party wanting to alter the agreement later on.
You do not have to attend court to file orders drafted in mediation. A legal representative can do this for you.
Perth Mediation Facilities – Who leads mediation?
Only a nationally accredited mediator can conduct mediation. They are accredited with the Australian Institute of Family Lawyers and Mediators (AIFLAM).
Our Legal Practitioner Director Shannon Bodeker can facilitate your mediation. Further, she can legally represent you at mediation in this space, or elsewhere.
