Customer Question
Hi I'd like to...

Hi I'd like to know where I can find a mediator to help me. My daughter died 12 years ago and my husband and I had the children stay every weekend until April. Now that he ha remarried we know longer see the children as often and I have to continuously ask to see them. I would like a mediator to assist me with this. Thanks for your help.

Lawyer's Assistant: Family law varies by state. What state are you in?

NSW

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

Yes, I have and they said Grandparents have rights. I can get a court order but I would rather try mediation before I go down that track.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No I think that's about it in a nut shell
