Parenting Mediation - GoldCoast

Gold coast provides parenting mediation service in QLD

What is Parenting Mediation?

Mediation takes a conciliatory pathway and the Mediator’s role is not to choose sides, or decide who is “the better parent” – it is to help both parents form a co-operative parenting arrangement for their children and one which is practical.

Your Mediation should be approached as a problem-solving exercise. The skills required for a successful Mediation are quite different from those used in advocacy. It is not the other lawyer or the Mediator who needs to be convinced – it is the person/parent on the other side of the table.

A Mediator facilitates communication, promotes understanding, assists the parties to identify their needs and interests and uses creative problem-solving techniques to enable the parties to reach their own agreement.

Your Mediation will include educational research, age appropriate suggestions for the children’s schedules, information on how conflict between parents can affect children and suggestions for separating maturely so that you are able to choose to engage in a co-parenting relationship sooner rather than later.

How to strengthen your new co-parenting relationship after separation

Post separation can be an emotional mind-field. We can support you and your children on a regular basis, sharing firm co-parenting skills and arbitrating between you if necessary, until your ‘new’ relationship starts to run more smoothly. Parenting Co-ordination & Conflict Resolution Sessions are available to support you all.

What are the main Benefits of Co-Parenting Mediation Services

Conciliatory

Family Dispute Resolution (Mediation) is the first step required in the process of separation for both your property and parenting matters. Mediation is a conciliatory approach enabling you both to decide on the best way forward for you and your family – rather than allowing a complete stranger (a Judge) to make those decisions for you. We have a three step process that can keep you out of court and the need for litigation. Call us now!

Cost Effective

Family Dispute Resolution is required by the Federal & Family Court prior to making an application for orders. The most cost effective way of resolving your issues is to attend a mediation in the first instance before the need to engage lawyers or start litigation.
