Why Separate From Your Spouse/Partner Without Court?

Besides the obvious cost benefit of separating without court proceedings, there are many valid reasons for choosing mediation as your path forward. Adding legal representation to the mediation process makes the entire separation process move faster, more smoothly - and far more cost-effective.

Take the unnecessary stress out of the picture

Separation doesn’t need to be so time-consuming and difficult.

Lawyer-led mediation

Traditional mediation has many benefits - but access to on-demand legal advice may not be one of them. With lawyer-led mediation, you can take advantage of having immediate access to legal assistance and guidance to quickly and legally finalise all separation matters.

Preserve the relationship

Resolve family and separation issues in a less adversarial environment, with no one getting more hurt and traumatised than they already have been. Mediation allows for a less confrontational experience - but with the rigour of legal advice. More times than not, this approach ends in a better future for both parties.

Get a speedy resolution

Finalise your family and separation matters over a short period of time with a qualified lawyer. Lawyers can take action on your behalf immediately, whereas mediators often have to refer to lawyers for advice - costing you more - in both time and money. Without legal advice, you can expect a lot of back and forth, which means more waiting time to resolve the separation - and ultimately, higher total expenses.

Take control over the outcome

Get peace of mind knowing that you will be reaching a negotiated agreement with your ex-partner. This is far more attractive than leaving any final decisions to a judge and the courts system.
