Family Mediation, also known as Family Dispute Resolution, is a service to help family who is going through separation. This mediation service can provide information, counselling, dispute resolution and group programs to help couples who are separating to resolve their family law disputes. These disputes may include conflicts over child care, child support, financial arrangements and property settlement. It is intended to help separating couples reach agreements that are in the best interest of their children. It also encourages separating couples to parent cooperatively.
The aim of family therapy is not to place blame on a single family member but rather to change overall family interaction or behaviour to help resolve the concern.
Similarly, Family Mediation is also extended to all family members other than just parents.
If you are a young person wanting to talk with your parents about your spending time arrangements or perhaps a step-parent wanting practical support and tools to step-parent, we offer mediation sessions where all members of a family including grandparents, parents, step-parents, children and step-children can come together to discuss and resolve issues. We can also provide one-on-one, couple, family counselling, and family mediation to help practically support step-families.
