Where to Resolve Parenting Disputes

The best environment for a Family Dispute Resolution is one that is safe, neutral, comfortable and peaceful.  You need time to think about what is best for your children and you in the future.

The location of FDR can be anywhere and any time as long as you and everyone else are comfortable with it. This could mean the most appropriate location might be under a tree, in the desert or at the local library or community centre.  Naturally, FDR can also be done in a meeting room, a boardroom or any other private setting where everyone can discuss your children and family properly using respectful behaviour while keeping it private.

In prioritising the needs of our clients, you select the best location that is neutral and safe for everyone involved. For disputes that call for videoconferencing, we can provide a location that will best cater to this need. Technology can be used to facilitate communication and mediation where necessary, and we have the resources needed to mediate anywhere. Using technology, there are no barriers to getting anyone together, wherever they are in the world.

SHAW FDR is able to help you arrange the venue in serviced, professional offices in all cities or towns in Australia.  We proudly come to you and can arrange to use quality, pleasant and comfortable serviced offices anywhere, which provide the essentials like tea, coffee, water.  Let us know if you need to arrange the location.  Here is out Let’s Talk Venue Package

Our Locations

‘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!’
