• Mediation makes a difference

    Posted on January 20, 2012 at 5:17 pm under Family Law category.

    I have just spent the day doing a Mediation with my client about some very significant issues involving his child.

    We were able to arrange mediation with a private mediator which has probably saved both my client and his ex partner a significant amount of time and money.

    More importantly it may have reduced much of the angst that has existed between them.

    Mediation has become an important tool used by Family lawyers where the parties can start to take control. It is a process which can take much of the day but at the end of that day many more people than not leave with a result which they may not be completely happy about but at least it is a resolution and they can both move on. It is a decision however that both parties have reached on their own with the help of competent lawyers.

    Queensland lawyers are at the forefront of this process and it is now being pushed in other States.

    Queensland lawyers can be proud that we are leading the way in this area.

    Have a nice and relaxing weekend.
