How to Proceed with FDR

At SHAW FDR, our practitioners are registered FDRPs with the AG’s Department and nationally accredited mediators with a legal background.  We all comply with the mediation standards and have ongoing professional development.

AT FDR everyone feels safe and supported. Everyone feels listened to and heard. Everyone has the opportunity to raise all their concerns. There is a process and a procedure to the FDR controlled by the FDRP, which is flexible and tailored to you and your dispute. However, you do the talking, discussing, negotiating, brainstorming, reality testing and evaluating. Our FDRP facilitates this and helps you to communicate so you can achieve your outcome on all levels, legal and personal to you and your family.

‘I chose mediation because I thought that it could be a much more friendly and amicable way to resolve our issues. The expense and time delays relating to court and the effect on the children were things that I did not want. I did a lot of research online and chose SHAW Mediation, in particular FDR Mediator Alison Shaw because of her good reputation and background as a Family Law Lawyer, to me it just made sense to have a mediator that knew family law also. The set fees associated with the mediation was something I needed.

Alison is clearly and simply good at what she does. The process can be extremely overwhelming, Alison and her team walked me through from first contact, to the end of the mediation. Alison managed it beautifully and she’s definitely in the right job.  I would 110% recommend SHAW Mediation Australia, so much so, that I would like to work with one of you in the future!’
