WHAT WE DO?
Assisting families through separation & conflict, we work out arrangements for parenting and property matters.
The Aequitas Mediation Team are registered and qualified Family Dispute Resolution Practitioners (FDRPs). We are an enthusiastic, dynamic, and vibrant team with multidisciplinary backgrounds in counselling, psychology, coaching, Family mediation in Property and Parenting Matters, and workplace mediation.
Our FDRPs/mediators are specialised in Family Mediation for Children and Property matters. We assist families through separation and conflict, working out arrangements that focus on the best interest of the child(ren) and property settlements. In Children’s matters, we follow the Family Court’s primary considerations that Agreements are centred on the safety and best interests of the child(ren). We provide safe and encouraging environments that enable parents to respectfully communicate their frustrations, thoughts, and ideas.
Where mediation is not successful or deemed not appropriate then as qualified mediators we are able to issue the Section 60i Exemption Certificate for clients to proceed to Family Court. We also refer clients who require legal advice to notable Legal Practices.
The Family Law Act prescribes that a Section 60I certificate is required when a party makes an application to the Family Court for a Parenting matter.
A s60I Certificate can only be issued by a Registered Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner (FDRP), when two parties are unable to reach an agreement during a Family Mediation, or the FDRP deems the situation is unsuitable for mediation.
A consent order is a written agreement that is registered with the Family Court. It can cover parenting arrangements and/or property. Consent Orders are legally enforceable. We can certainly help translate your Parenting Plan or Property Agreement into Consent Orders.
Unlike most government funded Family Resolution Centres, Aequitas Mediation do not automatically turn away clients with VROs or have a Domestic Violence history. We take on clients with VROs so long as their VROs expressly states that attending family mediations will not be in breach of the Order.
We regularly collaborate with reputable lawyers, financial advisors, psychologists and counselors that assist Parents to holistically separate.
Self reflection, and participation at conferences, workshops, and continuous professional seminars all ensure that we provide an optimal service to our clients.
Warm, affable, approachable and professional team. We are an enthusiastic dynamic and vibrant bunch and always available to offer support to our clients.
Parents are encouraged to take control of their situation and make decisions that suit their circumstances.
We offer competitive pricing and interest free payment plans.
We understand people have busy schedules and often work full time, we offer after hour appointments as well.
We look forward to chatting to you about your needs and providing appropriate solutions.
