Argyll FDRP can help you determine whether family mediation is right for you and your partner.

What Sets Argyll FDRP Apart Regarding Family Dispute Resolution on the Gold Coast

At Argyll FDRP, you can meet with a family dispute resolution practitioner on the Gold Coast for mediation services to resolve parenting issues between you and your partner. There are many advantages to working with us rather than going through the court, or through a government-funded service, including:

  • You’ll save time and money. We charge less than many of our competitors yet offer a superior service. We can also book your consultation within days of when you first contact us, and many of our cases are completely resolved within three weeks.
  • Less stress. Sitting down together in mediation, communicating clearly with an impartial facilitator, and reaching an agreement can be much easier and less stressful than having to take your matter to court.
  • More control over your outcome. We can help you and your partner understand each other and compromise to reach a solution both parties find fair – unlike the court, who will make many of your decisions for you.
  • Better family relations going forward. Mediation may help you, your partner and anyone else involved communicate more effectively, both now and in the future.

Family dispute resolution can help separating couples reach a parenting agreement on the Gold Coast and help everyone in the family live more peacefully in the years ahead.

Tips for Getting More Value Out of Family Law Mediators on the Gold Coast

As you work with your partner and your mediator to create a parenting agreement, it’s important to be sure that it covers all the important points and leaves no room for misunderstandings later on. Your mediator will ensure that all these points are covered, but it’s a good idea to go into your session with an idea of the things you want to discuss, such as:

  • Which parent has responsibility for the children
  • Where the children will live
  • When the children will spend time with other family members, such as the other parent and grandparents
  • Financial support of the children
  • The children’s medical treatment, education and other long-term decisions

At your initial consultation, you will likely discuss these items and more to give you and your mediator a clearer picture of the things that are most important to you. Your partner will have their own separate consultation for the same purpose. Then, at a separate appointment, you and your partner will meet together with the mediator to talk through the issues at hand and come to an agreement.
