- The initial consultation is usually 1 – 1.5 hours and used to obtain an understanding of your matter(s), and complete any documentation identifying the issues.https://adrams-mediation.com.au/about-us/costs/
- We also include, in the initial meeting, as a requirement of Mediation, a full Safety and Risk Screen all participants prior to moving forward.
- We understand that people who are in dispute don’t often see a way forward, and may be reluctant to talk about the issues.
- At ADRAMS we begin with a separate private and confidential meeting with each participant.
Jo-Anne is an Experienced Mediator, who will not bring both participants together to discuss their issues until after the private meeting sessions have occurred. This ensures we have a good understanding of the issues within the dispute. Additionally, ensure that there are no risk or other factors applying to either party.
When both parties do come together,with the FDRP, an agenda is created to summarise and list what each person wants to discuss. Both parties will be asked to discuss what they hope to achieve.
- The parties can discuss the options they may offer to make changes, to what they see needs to be done in the future.
- Once both parties can view the issues on the Agenda board, they can then discuss and explain to each other what is concerning them.
By doing this, the parties can talk through each issue to determine if more time is required to come to a point of view agreed by each other.
When Agreements are reached, our Mediator(s) will assist in drafting and writing them.
- If Agreements are to be subject to a legal process, the parties will talk about how this will be arranged.
- If the Agreement cannot be reached on all areas of difference, Mediation can help to identify what issues can be followed up in the process.
