Any type of conflict can be stressful, upsetting and confusing. Mediation is a structured, communication-based and party-centred process. Family Dispute Resolution (FDR) is mediation designed for families.

Juno specialises in communication. A skilled mediator takes time to listen to you – from what has happened in the past to where you would like to see yourself in the future.

Sure, I do recommend seeking legal advice and possibly independent financial advice before you start family dispute resolution or any other mediation; let specialists help you in regard to legal and financial matters.

However, let a specialist in active listening and communication skills help you with your dispute resolution!

As a nationally accredited mediator with a counselling background instead of law, I can assure you that

  • You will be supported and treated fairly.
  • You will have plenty of time to explain your situation and your concerns.
  • You save money – mediation is a lot more cost effective than going to court.
  • It is YOU who will determine your future, not a judge.
  • Mediation saves you time. A court process can take months, or even years until it’s resolved.
  • Speaking of court, mediation has far less formalities and protocols.
  • Your pre-mediation can be arranged within two weeks – no waiting lists!
  • You will be provided with helpful resources and information.
  • For FDR, you will get assistance discussing your children’s and family’s needs.
  • Some conflicts, such as workplace conflicts, can be resolved in as little as a day!

Fees for your Mediation or Family Dispute Resolution

Instead of being charged with hourly rates (or even in 6-minutes’ increments…), your package includes

  • 2 individual pre-mediation sessions of up to 90 minutes long: One for you and one for the other party.
  • 1 joint mediation session of up to 3 hours long.
  • All sessions will be facilitated by Ursula Najar, who is a nationally accredited mediator and family dispute resolution practitioner as well as a nationally accredited counsellor.
  • Short, individual private sessions during your mediation to check in with you on how you’re going.
  • All documentation, e-mails, phone calls and other administrative time.
  • A list of resources or referrals which may be of assistance to you.
  • Your agreement or other outcome documents.
  • Information on how to make your agreement legally binding.

$ 1690.00 total (if you are splitting the cost 50/50, then that would be $845.00 per party)

A non-refundable deposit of $490.00 ($245.00/party) is required before your first pre-mediation session.

Optional extras:

If you can’t reach an agreement the first time around, or you might like to continue your negotiations, you can book additional dispute sessions. For example, you may choose to do a parenting plan first and then decide to do a separate mediation for your property settlement.

Additional joint mediation session

up to 3 hours: $900.00

Certificate 60i

This is a certificate made under the Family Law Act which deals with matters involving children. If your parenting dispute cannot be resolved, or there is family violence or child abuse present, or the matter is urgent, then you will have to file this certificate with the court application before going to court.

Juno can issue this certificate for you at no extra cost.

Conference rooms

I can also book conference rooms with Adelaide Meeting Room Hire at an extra cost if you prefer a more formal setting, or if you would like to be in separate rooms. Prices start from $ 160.00 per room for half a day.
