Are you or someone that you know involved in a Domestic Violence dispute in Brisbane, Queensland? It doesn’t have to stay in the court system. You can control the outcome and get a better result through Domestic Violence Mediation.
Negotiating an arrangement though a domestic violence mediation can get you out of court; save you money; let you get on with your life.
Domestic violence mediation can be conducted with one or both parties attending by Skype, but, if the parties to the dispute feel safe and are all happy to meet face to face, then a domestic violence mediation can be conducted in person. We can conduct a domestic violence mediation with or without lawyers, or even if only one party has a lawyer.
We have male and female mediators (Barristers and Solicitors) available if there are cultural issues involved. Our Brisbane Mediators all have experience in domestic violence litigation, family law, and criminal law.
A domestic violence mediation costs $1,320. If you can share the costs, that only $660 each. Compare that to what it cost you just for the first day of court. By the time of a trial, you could have saved tens of thousands of dollars.
