Why we are different
We listen. We prioritise your needs and your children’s needs. Our style and approach is an ‘alternative’ to legal.
We help you manage your family’s separation in a healthy way – to be more in control of the process, the costs and the outcomes. We know what you need at this time is:
- Immediate appointments
- Workable agreements and settlements for lower cost
- Fast-tracked process
- Fixed fees
- Minimised legal services
Our Financial Mediation saves you time and money by taking a mutual and transparent approach, jointly working through the issues to reach agreement. The legal check-ins and sign-offs are via Family Lawyers who are on board with doing things collaboratively. Read more
