Mark offers fixed fees and can issue Section 60I Certificates, which allow parents and separating families to make a Family Court application in relation to children, when Family Dispute Resolution or FDR for short, is either unsuccessful or not appropriate.

Parents are required to engage in FDR to try and reach an agreement in relation to the arrangements for their children, prior to making an application to the Family Court for Parenting Orders. FDR, is a special form of Family Mediation that adopts a child focused approach with the aim of building a safe environment in which children can live, learn and mature.

Whilst there is currently no obligation to engage in Family Mediation prior to making an application to the Family Court for Property Orders, it could assist you to reach a solution to your property dispute quickly and without the need for costly Family Court proceedings.

During Family Mediation we will:

  • Not make any decision for the parties, coerce them to enter into an agreement or act in a legal capacity for either of them.
  • Provide a relaxed and informal environment that allows parties to express their views, explain what is important to them and why.
  • Assist both parties to generate options to resolve their dispute.
