Family Dispute Resolution Mediation

What is Family Dispute Resolution Mediation?

Resolving family law disputes through mediation can be a cost and time-efficient way to reach a mutually agreeable solution without involving courts. This is where Shane McClure’s Family Dispute Resolution Mediation (FDRM) services come in. As a nationally accredited mediator and family dispute resolution mediation practitioner, Shane can help separated couples navigate the process.

How FDR Mediation Works

FDR mediation services facilitate communication, clarify issues, and ensure that both parties are able to freely negotiate without fear or coercion. This ultimately leads to an informed and voluntary agreement for separation or divorce.

What If Children Are Involved In Family Disputes?

When children are involved, a court will require the parties to attend dispute resolution to finalize matters relating to the care and well-being of the children. FDR mediation is a great alternative to court proceedings and can be far quicker, simpler, and more cost-effective than dragging issues through the courts.

Section 60(i) Certificates

In most cases, a Section 60(I) Certificate is required before issuing proceedings in court for parenting matters. Shane can issue these certificates to allow your matter to go to court if necessary. Click here and check out our guide on Section 60i Certificates for parents.

When to Seek FDR Mediation Services

  • If you’ve decided to separate, seeking FDR mediation services can be an excellent first step.
  • It’s also a good idea to speak with Shane if you need legal advice regarding parenting or financial arrangements or if you’ve already agreed upon the terms of a financial settlement and need assistance to make your agreement legally binding.
  • Additionally, if you’ve been separated for a while and need to review parenting arrangements or the payment or receipt of expenses relating to the children, FDR mediation can be an excellent option.
  • Or, any time you need help and support with parenting or financial arrangements as a result of your separation.

The Importance of Communication in FDR Mediation

Communication is key to productive and successful FDR mediation. While the process may not always be perfect, it can be extremely helpful in facilitating productive communication. FDR mediation can identify issues of concern and then find mutually suitable solutions.

In FDR mediation, both parties have the opportunity to express their views and concerns in a safe and confidential environment. This can help create a sense of understanding and respect between both parties, which can ultimately lead to an informed and voluntary agreement for separation or divorce.

Moreover, FDR mediation provides a clear and amicable framework for the family’s future. It allows both parties to come to an agreement that suits the needs of their family, rather than having a decision imposed upon them by the courts.

Shane McClure’s FDR mediation services prioritise communication and are designed to help separated couples navigate the mediation process with respect and understanding. With his services, you can achieve a mutually agreeable solution that is tailored to your family’s unique circumstances.
