Mediation Packages

At BFMC we offer tailored mediation packages at a fixed price.  Our experienced team of Family Mediators are able to assist you and your spouse to negotiate agreements on the legal issues arising on the breakdown of a marriage.  This will generally include parenting and financial arrangements.  Our mediation team are able to offer Family Dispute Resolution and where necessary, issue s60(I) certificates at the conclusion of a mediation process.

BFMC is also able to offer families wishing to discuss arrangements for children the assistance of a Child Practitioner.  This experienced Psychologist can meet with your family and your children and provide you with specialist feedback during your mediation process to assist you and your spouse to make decisions that will be in the best interests of your children.  Mediation for families is a primary way of reaching agreement after separation on your legal issues.  It is both a cost effective and time effective way of solving these difficult issues.

We encourage you to make contact with our team today to discuss how mediation can assist your family.

Features – What is  included?

  • Initial preparation meeting with the mediator (“intake”) for both you and your former spouse (separately) to assess whether your matter is appropriate for mediation, identify the issues to be discussed and assist you to better understand the process.
  • A structured process whereby mediation goals are discussed and your matter is progressed in a timely fashion towards the mediation date.
  • A cooperative mediation day (up to 8 hours as necessary) where you and your former spouse (and your legal representatives, if applicable) meet with the mediator to reach agreements on matters important to both of you.

Benefits – Why is this useful to me?

  • Discussions can include matters big or small and do not have to be limited to issues that are only relevant at law.
  • By entering into mediation each party is committing to make a genuine effort to resolve the matter and to act in good faith.
  • Reaching agreement at mediation can short-circuit your resolution pathway leading to more timely and cost-efficient outcomes for you and your family.
  • If you have children, mediation can sometimes include the input of a child expert, who will assist with understanding the needs and best interests of your children (after meeting separately with them, and with you, prior to mediation)

Results – What do I have at the end?

  • An experienced and knowledgeable mediator who will provide you with guidance and information in plain English, to assist you and your former spouse to reach mutually acceptable agreements.
  • If the mediation results in an agreement you now only need to have legal representatives formalise this into the appropriate legal document to finalise your legal matter and enable you to move forward with clarity.
  • If the mediation does not result in an agreement it will provide you with a greater level of clarity as to the issues to be resolved and the needs and values of your former spouse, which may help you to negotiate an agreement subsequent to the mediation.

Child Informed Mediation Package

If you have separated with children our Child Informed Mediation Package will enable you and your former spouse the opportunity to obtain input from a Child Expert when formulating an agreement about the arrangements for your children.

You, your spouse, and your children will meet with the child expert prior to your mediation date.  That expert will spend time with your family understanding your children’s development and needs.  The expert will then attend at your mediation, to provide you independent feedback about your children and provide guidance as to the arrangements that might best support them into the future.
