While the family mediation process is not always perfect, it can be extremely helpful in facilitating productive communication. It can identify issues of concern and then find mutually suitable solutions. The mediation process not only provides a clear and amicable framework for the family’s future, but it is also far quicker, simpler and more cost-effective than dragging issues through the Courts, which can involve significant delays and costly legal fees.
Irrespective of whether you think your dispute is suitable for mediation or not, you are urged to contact Shane McClure for his opinion and advice. In most cases, mediation can take place irrespective of an IVO (Family Violence Intervention Order).
