Our founder and Principal, Mark Davies, is admitted as a lawyer of the Supreme Court of Western Australia and a solicitor of the Supreme Court of England and Wales.

With a few exceptions, separating parents and interested family members are required to engage in a special form of Family Law Mediation, known as Family Dispute Resolution, prior to issuing Family Court proceedings, where they try and reach an agreement in relation to children.

During the Family Dispute Resolution process we will assist parents and family members to try and agree a Parenting Plan, recognising that every family situation is different and that parents and family members know what works best for them and the children of the family and that parents and family members are more likely to abide by any agreement which they have reached themselves.

If it is not possible for parents and family members to reach agreement, we can issue a certificate which allows Family Court proceedings to be issued.

If Family Court proceedings have already been commenced, we can engage in Family Law Mediation with parents and family members to assist them to reach a try and reach a settlement in those proceedings and avoid the need for a trial. We often conduct Family Law Mediation in the presence of the lawyers appointed by parents and their family members.

Property and Assets

Family Law Mediation also includes Property Mediation, which can help separating couples to reach an agreement dealing with the division of all their property and assets, including houses, cars, boats, pets, jewellery, cash, shares, superannuation, personal effects, furniture and debt, including credit card debt and mortgages.

We offer Property Mediation to separating couples, both prior to and after the commencement of Family Court proceedings. We often conduct Property Mediation in the presence of the lawyers appointed by separating couples.


  • Intake Session (1 hour)
    An intake session is an opportunity for us to find out more about your situation, answer any questions that you may have and prepare you for a joint session. It is confidential and the other parent or family members will not be present. During intake sessions, we will assess whether Mediation is suitable and if necessary, we will issue a certificate. The cost of an Intake Session is $300.00 plus GST per person and includes the issue of a certificate, if appropriate.
  • Joint Family Dispute Resolution or Family Law Mediation (including Property Mediation) (3 hours)
    The cost of a joint session is $450.00 plus GST per person for up to 3 hours of time.
  • Parenting Plans
    Our hourly rate is $300.00 plus GST.
    The cost of drafting a Parenting Plan depends upon the complexity of the Plan and any extra time spent communicating outside of a joint session.
