Is it difficult to talk to your ex about your children and your finances?
Separation and divorce are difficult. In amongst the wounded feelings and the broken hearts are the children and the finances. When you are in difficult circumstances, communication can be difficult and ineffective. This often leads to poor decisions that can affect your life, the life of your children, and your future. We can help make separation or divorce the process a little bit easier, and ensure that decisions you make now, have a positive impact on your future. Moreover, mediation can help reduce the stress and the expenses of separation or divorce. Find out how Private Mediation can help. Book a free consultation and visit our Brisbane office. There is no obligation and nothing to lose.
Private mediation facilitates safe communication by providing a secure environment and a professional approach to ensure that goals are reached. Mediation helps each party to focus on a positive outcome, rather than the peripheral circumstances. In most cases both parties genuinely want what is best for the children and each other, but struggle to communicate the points effectively in the difficulty of the situation.
