How can mediation help me?

In a nutshell, mediation is the process in which parties work with a neutral facilitator to isolate an issue, develop options and consider alternatives to best accommodate their needs.

The mediator does not make decisions for the parties.  The mediator helps the parties to negotiate so they can reach their own agreement. There are very few disputes that cannot be mediated and using this process can avoid the time-consuming and costly process of litigation.

What can be mediated?

  • Civil disputes
  • Resource management cases
  • Family issues: child custody and access arrangements, relationship property and similar disputes
  • Business plans – where parties appear to be heading in different directions
  • Neighbourhood and community issues
  • Civil disputes including contractual issues, leases, partnership or joint venture issues, employment and building disputes
