Britt Smith is an accredited Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner. She is authorised to provide family dispute resolution services and issue section 60I certificates.
In parenting matters, most people are required to attempt mediation before filing an application in a court. However, parties can arrange a mediation about Family Law issues at any time.
We offer mediation services in children’s matters for parents but occasionally grandparents and other family members may attend. We also offer mediation services in property matters for partners who have separated.
You do not have to bring a lawyer to mediation. Some people choose to bring a lawyer with them and other people attend by themselves. We can accommodate both situations.
When a person contacts us, we will assess whether the matter is suitable for mediation. If the matter is suitable, we will arrange a mediation on a date where all parties are available to attend.
If you would like more information about mediation, or a fee schedule, please contact our office on 02 4285 5577 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
