Negotiations, Arbitrations & Mediations

Mediation or Court

Mediation or Court?

If there is disagreement in your family about legal matters – divorce, separation, parenting arrangements and property settlement – the Family Law system in Australia, calls for everyone involved to engage in mediation and negotiation before filing in Court. Cases only need to go to Court if mediation doesn’t lead to an agreement.

At Mahony Family Lawyers we have the experience, knowledge and understanding to represent you in mediation, negotiations or arbitration, no matter what your family situation. Call us today on 02 9018 9408 or send an email to info@mahonylawyers.com.au to make an appointment.

In mediations, detailed legal knowledge, skill in argument and, above all, personal commitment will be what you need in your lawyer. Our legal team at Mahony Family Lawyers have all these qualities. We are dedicated to seeking the best agreement possible in your situation and, if you have children, to guaranteeing their best interests are met.

Lawyer Assisted Negotiations

Court and Negotiation

If mediation and negotiation does not result in an agreement in your matter, then the case may need to go to Court, but even if that happens, negotiation and agreement are still the priorities.

Family law cases are heard by the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia.  The team at Mahony Family Lawyers Parramatta has a wealth of experience and know in detail how these Courts will approach your case. Our Principal Solicitor, Jillian Morrison and Associate, Kathryn Dunkley both started their legal careers as Associates to Judges of the Federal Circuit Court of Australia and as a result of this experience have a unique insight into the Court process and a thorough understanding of how the Judges approach cases.
