Why we recommend mediation as a first step

In family law matters, mediation can be a great place to start. Mediation creates a lower-pressure environment where two parties are encouraged to come to an agreement that is fair and mutually beneficial. This path is typically less emotionally taxing on both parties, prioritises any children involved, and can be more cost-effective than involving the court.

When successful, mediation can lead to a quicker resolution and,  in a lot of cases, preserve family relationships through open and productive communication.
