So what is FDR Family Dispute Resolution (“Mediation”) and what do mediators do?

Mediation is a smarter alternative than going to Court.  The Mediator will talk to both of you after the breakdown of your relationship and help you come to an agreement on how to divide property, finances and belongings and to make arrangements for your children for the future.

Within weeks, Mediation can be arranged by either:

  1. In a face to face meeting with the Mediator (same room); or
  2. By shuttle (2 separate rooms) where you don’t have to see each other; or
  3. On the telephone; or
  4. By online video conference. 


Before our first session, please print and read, so that you are fully prepared.
