Family mediation is not limited to separation and divorce matters. There are many family conflicts that can be solved through mediation. These include parent/teen conflict, elder mediation, conflicts between family members, and conflicts regarding Wills and Estates. Another growth area in mediation is assistance with prenuptial and marriage agreements.
The Civil umbrella encompasses a wide variety of disputes. These include personal injury, business/partnership disputes, workplace conflicts, insurance, medical, construction and strata disputes. Previously many of these matters went before the court in order to have a decision imposed. Many of these disputes are now mediated. Rather than disputants battle their dispute in a costly litigious process, many are choosing the route of mediation for cost effective and timely solutions.
