Many people stand to benefit significantly from being trained in family dispute resolution in Sydney. However, not everyone is familiar with the concept of mediation. Not everyone knows how it works, what it entails, and how it can help them. Except in emergencies, mediation can be a great alternative to litigation.
What Is Mediation?
Family mediation in Sydney is a form of dispute resolution in which the involved parties are assisted to discuss their differences with each other with the assistance of an impartial third party. The mediators are trained professionals who will guide and facilitate the negotiation toward a resolution that’s fair to both parties. For example, if a couple is divorcing, mediation could help them resolve issues related to property distribution, parenting arrangements, child support, insurance considerations, and other concerns.
When you select a mediator, it’s essential to find someone who’s properly trained and experienced in the subject matter involved. Although mediators must meet specific qualifications, this does not mean they are all equal. Look for professional mediators with solid reputations for working successfully with the types of issues you’re experiencing. The right mediator will listen carefully to you, to ensure they understand your situation and can conduct mediation with the best interests of your family in mind.
Reaching an Agreement
You may have chosen to attend mediation or been ordered to by the Court, but that does not mean you will automatically reach an agreement in mediation. Do your best to come to an agreement without legal intervention whenever possible. In mediation, we help you to talk to each other, not fight against each other. Parties will have control over the terms of the resolution, allowing more leeway for creative solutions to complex problems.
Keep in mind reaching a fair agreement does not mean you’ll both walk away happy and carefree, in fact, the best solution often means each person will have to give some and take some. Think ahead of time about your bottom line on negotiations. Consider your ideal outcome as well as backup plans you would be able to live with.
