Divorce & Family Mediation: Minimising the Trauma of Change™ Mediation is a unique solution which assists with the legal processes and always keeps the family in mind. Family mediation is non-confrontational in nature and progressive. It encourages parties to focus on the future and problem solving strategies rather than the problems of the past. The process is also child-centered whereby the parties are encouraged to make special provision for the needs of their children. The mediation process is more cost and time effective. It is less traumatic than litigation and ensures that you still make the choices and remain in control of your and your children's future. Our services includes mediation, parenting plans and MOU's for the legal process Download our print-friendly Family Mediation Information Pack for more information
Parenting Plan A parenting plan is first and foremost a promise to the child. It is a written document that summarises the way in which parents will raise their child after the divorce or separation. A parenting plan is created by both parents in the best interest of their children and may be made an order of Court. Both parents, under the law, remain the holders of parental responsibilities and rights with regard to their minor child(ren) which is considered any child under the age of 18 years.

Protection Order Assistance A protection order, commonly referred to as a restraining order or domestic violence interdict, is a Court order that tells an abuser to stop the abuse and sets certain conditions preventing the abuser from harassing or abusing the victim again. A protection order aims at preventing the reoccurrence of domestic violence or sexual harassment by stating what conduct the alleged offender must refrain from doing. As long as he/she complies with the protection order, the complainant will be safe. If the respondent contravenes any stipulation of the protection order, he/she may be arrested. Once a protection order is granted, it is enforceable throughout the entire country. We offer assistance with the entire process and manage the stress of the application.
