Family Solutions

Family Solutions

You can rely on our trusted team of mediators to help you and your family to resolve your issues, involving children or finances creatively and effectively, without the need for court proceedings.

Mediation is often quicker, more civilised and cost effective than the court process. In cases involving children, mediation encourages parents to work together for the benefit of their children – even though their relationship as a couple has ended – and always focuses on what is in the best interests of the children involved. All of our family mediators are registered with the Family Mediation Council (FMC), and are highly experienced in this specialist area, so you can be assured that you will be provided with a service you can trust that is tailored to your needs.

If you are looking for experienced help and support you can trust, our highly experienced team of mediators will take the time to understand your needs and circumstances and work with you to resolve your issues amicably.

Cost of Mediation

Although Legal Aid to obtain legal advice from lawyers is no longer available for children and financial family disputes, Legal Aid for mediation remains unchanged.

For clients who meet the eligibility criteria, Family Solutions can grant free Legal Aid. If you want to check your eligibility click here.

"Human interaction with empathy and skill – not simply saying yes and taking the money. Exhausting all avenues to seek the best solution – not just the one I wanted. Significant skill and knowledge, an approach that is 'on your side' from the onset."
