Service Description

This appointment is required for all participants in matters relating to children. It is also required for all participants in family law property settlements where lawyers are not involved. This appointment is optional if the asset pool has been established by lawyers assisting the parties in family law property settlements and in other mediations that do not relate to family law. If you are not sure whether you need a pre-mediation session please contact Barling Mediation. If a pre-mediation appointment is required, a session will be held with each participant individually. If legally assisted, the participant’s lawyer is welcome (but not required) to attend. At this meeting, Mediator and Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner Julia Barling will talk to you about what you are hoping to achieve through the mediation process and will explain the process to you. She will also ask questions and assess whether mediation is safe and appropriate for your situation.
