We provide a sensitive, highly competent service for all family matters.

For those individuals who do not want to have the additional stresses of a full court hearing and would prefer to resolve any issues in a more informal setting our mediation service may provide the answer. Sally Bolton is a Family Mediation Association ("FMA") qualified mediator and has extensive experience in this area.  Sally can meet the parties to the dispute together in order to identify and explore issues the parties can agree on.
