Disputes can occur between couples, families, in the workplace or in the community. Independent mediation provides an effective, affordable and fast resolution to issues. The alternatives to private mediation can be very expensive legal costs, lengthy court processes, or long delays waiting for public mediation services. Make an enquiry with Australian Independent Mediation Services to decide if mediation is right for your situation.
The mediation process starts with confidential separate pre mediation intake sessions with both parties. We will ask you about the details of your dispute and what you’d like to achieve. We determine if there are any issues unsuitable for mediation or if any legal or cultural requirements need to be met. As part of the process to continue you will be asked to sign an agreement to our terms and conditions and will be provided with an information and costs pack.
Mediation differs for all parties and issues and there is no set time frame to results. Once parties have completed pre mediation sessions and signed agreements the mediation process begins at a predetermined time and location. Generally sessions take between 2-4 hours. In some instances multiple sessions will be required to address all issues in order to come to satisfactory resolution. Agreements will be drafted if required.
Separation and divorce effect all families in different ways but it doesn’t have to result in high conflict or long expensive legal battles. Australian Independent Mediation Services guides families through the process of
Family Dispute Resolution, required by The Family Court of Australia before it accepts any application for orders.
A registered Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner (FDRP) is required to issue a 60i certificate for any application for Family Court orders.
Business and organisations rely on good working relationships to be successful. When circumstances between partners, employers or employees deteriorate the result can be crippling both in productivity and financially. From workplace interventions in bullying and harassment, disputes in contractual agreements, financial dispersements and in matters of liability for injury or damages we can assist in mediating a just outcome outside the court system.
Community Conciliation is an option when disputes between neighbours, associations, and members of the community outside of our family and workplace arise. The mediation process is similar to other areas with enquiry, premediation intake sessions and then mediation to an agreed outcome and plan. In many instances thi s process provides a more mutually beneficial outcome in circumstances where the parties continue to reside next to or collaborate with each other.
