I provide affordable Mediation services as well as Family Dispute Resolution, with the option for those sessions to be lawyer inclusive.  I tailor the Mediation to individual parties' needs.  I can issue Section 60i Certificates.

My aim is to help families affected by separation and divorce reach solutions without going to Court, as well as making private mediation widely accessible.

I bring to Mediation a thorough understanding of the Family Law system and its processes having been admitted to the Supreme Court of South Australia in 2008 and working exclusively in Family Law.  I have provided specialised advice on complex property settlements, maintenance, child support, divorce and parenting disputes, having held employment as a Senior Associate for a leading Family Law firm in Western Australia.

I can provide Mediation services within a short time frame and on Saturdays if required.  Sessions take place in my boardroom facilities in Victoria Square.

Family Dispute Mediation

Are you unable to register quickly for a mediation at a Family Relationship Centre such as Centacare or Relationships Australia ?

Is private mediation a too costly alternative for you?

I can help.

I offer affordable and timely mediation in family dispute resolution when you need it.

I also realise it is difficult for parties to arrange a time for mediation during work hours. As a result, I offer mediation times after-hours and on Saturdays and Sundays. 

I welcome non-lawyer assisted mediation as well as lawyer assisted mediation.
