Our Team Process

In the instance of an uncontested break-up

  • Pre-Mediation (Caucus). One on one meeting with each party to determine the issues and solutions
  • Mediation meeting with both parties discussing the issues at hand
  • Reach an outcome and settlement agreement (Alternative Dispute Resolution – Both parties are in control of the outcome)

Where children are involved the Voice of the Child is mandatory. That due regard and due consideration be given to any views and wishes expressed by the child

      • Qualified VOC therapist (Psychologists/Social Worker) will have at least three VOC sessions with the child
      • The VOC therapist will give verbal feedback to the parents and mediator/s
  • The VOC report plays a big role when reaching the final settlement agreement
    In certain cases one or both parties may be referred to qualified therapist to work towards the “unique solution”
  • Once a settlement is reached a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) will be drafted and signed off by both parties
  • To strengthen the MOU a parenting plan will be discussed and agreed upon
  • The MOU will be referred to FAN appointed lawyers. The final settlement agreement will be drafted and signed by both parties to be presented to the court
  • The signed Parenting Plan will be attached to the final settlement agreement and presented to the Children’s Court
