Solicitor: John Melis, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

if mediation has failed the next step is to commence formal parenting negotiations with a lawyer, and if that also fails then Family Court proceedings needed be started.

Generally, once a lawyer starts communicating with the other-side lawyer, a parenting plan is agreed upon and consented / chopped by the court.

this process will be the most cost effective than full court proceedings.

would you like to consider this aspect first before filing for court proceedings ?

If you need any further information please let know.

You can come back to this post any time to ask questions and there will be no further charges to you.

Don’t forget to rate me 5 stars as this supports me helping the community, and thank you for using Just Answer.
