Are you worried about the impact COVID-19 has had on the family courts?
Mediation may be the best option for you.
Quinn & Scattini’s expert family lawyer, Kathleen Dare, states:
“COVID-19 has impacted on all of our lives and for many people the strain of being confined to being to their home and facing economic insecurity is resulting in relationship breakdowns. Now, more than ever, people need to resolve their disputes with minimal cost and avoid expensive court proceedings.
The Family and Federal Circuit Court are also under a lot of strain and have quickly adapted to conducting matters by telephone or video conferencing. Priority is now given to urgent children’s matters and the courts are adjourning property trials until 2022.
The courts now require parties to advise why the matter cannot be resolved by way of mediation or arbitration (where parties appoint a private judge).
Our Family Law section has quickly adapted to assist clients under the restrictions and new court requirements. We conduct all our initial consultations by telephone or by video conferencing. We have highly trained family lawyers experienced in mediation and conducting court hearings, mediations and arbitrations online by way of telephone, Zoom conferencing or in the case of the Courts by conducting hearings using Office Teams.
We recognise that mediation is the best way to resolve matters as it quick, cost effective and allows parties to have some control over the outcome. We look forward to being able to assist you settle your matter and avoid going to court.”
