Separation or divorce is never easy, but it can be especially difficult when there are children involved.
We prefer not to take our clients through the courts unless absolutely necessary.
Instead, we offer professional, unbiased family mediation and dispute resolution services. These services provide you and your former partner with an alternative, more amicable pathway towards settling child access, the division of finances, property, debts and other assets.
So, if you and your partner are struggling to reach an agreement over finances, access to your children or who gets the cat, we have the expertise to help reach a settlement through family mediation.
The majority of parties to a parenting dispute are required to participate in mediation with a registered Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner prior to initiating Family Court proceedings concerning children. However, in cases involving family violence or in urgent circumstances, an exemption can be obtained from attending mediation.
and we’ll tell you how we can help.
Any process involving the family court can be stressful and confusing.
West Coast Legal will hold your hand throughtout the entire process and make things easier.
Every situation is easier when you have guidance.
