Video Mediation AvailableTraditionally mediation required a mediator and the participants to travel to meet together in the same room. This raised security concerns and adds to the cost of the process. Video Mediation makes use of currently available technology to allow people to meet via a safe and secure video meeting technology to identify priorities, discuss issues and hopefully reach agreement to resolve disputes.
Options for all budgets
Mi Mediation Centre provides Mediation and Family Dispute Resolution services for people who need assistance to resolve conflict, no matter what their budget is.
We work on the social enterprise model where those who can afford to pay for services do so at a rate that is within their means. Those who are suffering from severe hardship can apply for fee exemptions or a larger percentage of the fees may be paid by one party to the dispute.
Understanding MediationMediation is a process that supports and empowers people to resolve conflict and disagreement themselves without the need of a judge imposing a decision on them. Often people are attracted to the court process due to being overwhelmed or the belief that the other person is so unreasonable that resolution is impossible. The evidence shows that mediation can be successful in many cases and saves time, money and improves ongoing relationships.
