What is Family Mediation?

Family Mediation is the neutral facilitation of family dispute negotiation. The negotiating parties enter the family mediation process voluntarily and maintain control over the agreements made. The process is designed to ensure a safe environment and level playing field during the negotiation process.

There is a better way to work out your differences.

An Accredited Family Mediator (AccFM) will guide you through the requirements, expectations, legal documentation and Family Mediation Process to ensure the best possible outcome.
