Conflict Resolution through Mediation

Mediation resolves conflict

Randal has been a solicitor in Queensland since 1992 and has been mediating family disputes and other matters ever since.  Mediation services offered to solicitors in Queensland are flexible and cost effective.  Not only can the mediator’s services be engaged to conduct a mediation on a set day, either for a half or full day, but the mediation process can be conducted over several different days, in person, in a shuttle format, by telephone or online video conferencing.

If you are in a remote area why not mediate online or by telephone with an experience family mediator and family dispute resolution practitioner.

In Parenting matters:

  • Mediate Early in parenting matters

    Contact Randal to issue an invitation to mediate parenting matters as early as possible when parenting arrangements are in dispute. It is not necessary to provide a list of mediators for the other party or lawyer to choose. An unnessary selection process will cause delay which often ends in an increase in tension and sometimes leads to domestic violence issues/orders arising out of the frustration of having unresolved parenting arrangements.

  • Invitations issue promptly

    An Invitation to attend family dispute resolution will issue promptly upon request (full details of the parties and the children will be required together with any information about the presence or allegations of family violence);

  • Mediations arranged quickly

    Mediation can be arranged to take place, often within 14 days or sooner if urgent, at venues suitable for the parties (at the parties cost).

In Family Law Property Settlement Matters:

  • Involve a mediator early in the process. Suggest to the other lawyer (or the self represented litigant) that an initial short meeting with the mediator to have the parties address disclosure and valuation issues will save both time, stress (yours and your clients‘), and expense. Why shouldn’t those issues be dispensed with as quickly as possible rather than taking weeks or sometimes months in correspondence between the parties solicitors. That process would involve the mediator facilitating communication between both the parties and their respective solicitors, reaching agreement on and appointing valuers, accountants or other necessary professionals.
  • Timing of mediation is crucial in some cases. Don’t try to mediate until you have valuations or at least firm agreed values and that adequate disclosure has been provided. (Consider the early involvement of mediation to accomplish both.)
  • Educate your client about mediation - Do they know the difference between facilitative and evaluative mediation processes and arbitration? What dispute resolution process might best suit them. Do they want to achieve their own outcomes with the assistance of both the mediator and yourself?
