At Measured Mediation & Professional Services, we bring a refreshingly new and relaxed way of resolving disputes. We resolve them in days, not years.
We offer fixed fee Mediation, no matter how many sessions you require to resolve your dispute. Unlike litigation, you'll get no surprise bills in the mail.
You do the maths! The average hourly rate of family lawyers is between $400 and $700. Conservatively let’s say your lawyer works on your file 2 hours each week and your matter takes 3 years to resolve (which is the average). On the lower end, your legal costs will be, $124,800 and on the upper end, $218,400. This is excluding Barristers and court fees. Now, remember that your ex-partner is doing the same thing.
So, using the same example, collectively you both spend $400,000 which will more than likely be removed from the property pool.
Cutting to the chase, mediation, on the other hand, is affordable for everyone. Our aim is to help families and the general public affected by conflict and disputes, reach solutions without going to Court. We offer a personalised service, flexible appointment times and no waitlist. You can settle your matters online without the need for in-person attendance. Meetings are conducted by teleconference or over the phone.
While some not for profit organisations will offer means-tested rates, they usually have long waiting lists and allocate a fixed amount of time per client and limited appointment times. Other mediation services will charge a fee per hour but matters can be complex and sessions can end up being very expensive, more than you need or can afford.
Measured Mediation & Professional Services offers fixed fee Mediation, no matter how many sessions you require to resolve your dispute. This is often paid by the person requesting or seeking mediation to resolve the matters in dispute. If this person would like to request financial reimbursement from the other party(ies) involved, this can be added to the agenda items and discussed in mediation. Alternatively, if all parties have agreed prior to mediation, to share the combined costs, this will be arranged and included in the client registration forms and payment schedules.

Save plenty by avoiding big legal fees.

You may have no other alternative but to litigate, and if that is the case, our team of early resolution-focused family mediators can help you by referring to a specialist independent lawyer. The independent lawyers are those which we know and trust, to make sure you are represented the best way possible. Any costs, will be agreed upon between you and the independent lawyer.
