Financial and Property Settlement: Constructively and respectfully divide your assets. Unlike parenting mediation, property mediation isn’t compulsory but it is quickly becoming the preferred choice for parties wanting help with difficult decisions but who don’t want to waste vast amounts of money with lawyers.
Should your property matter end up in Court, legal costs resembling telephone-book numbers can sadly erode a large percentage of your hard earned assets. Even if you don’t end up in Court, it is easy to spend $10 000, $20 000, $30 000 and more just negotiating for a few months backwards and forwards between lawyers.
In contrast, property mediation can often be finalised in a few sessions. Depending on how complex your matter is, going to mediation and having your property agreement drawn up into Court Orders by your lawyer can cost less than $5000 in total – leaving a much greater amount for you to put towards your new life.
