Matrimonial Property Disputes

The breakdown of a family can be a highly emotional and traumatic time for all parties involved. It is not uncommon for disputes over property to arise. Using mediation as a means of communicating between parties can take a lot of the stress out of negotiations.

Litigation can be very costly, and the adversarial nature very detrimental to relationships. Mediation can help to reach a mutually agreed decision without having to get caught up in litigation. With the assistance of a skilled mediator, parties can help to understand each others needs by communicating in a constructive way. The courts have always encouraged parties involved in family law disputes to settle their disputes outside of the court.

Michael B. Williams is a skilled mediator with extensive experience in matrimonial property disputes. Michael has a comprehensive understanding of the law relating to property settlements. He also holds specialist mediation accreditation from the NSW Bar.

If you are looking to resolve matrimonial disputes over property through mediation, contact Michael Williams today on 02 9231 0077.

Mediation Articles


"A Mediator should never provide an opinion or advice concerning the merits of a case" verses "a Mediator should always offer an evaluative opinion on the dispute"


It is crucial to the success of any mediation that compliance be enforced with the requirement of attendance of the parties in person and an officer from corporate parties with full authority to settle.
