Mediation waiting times

RAQ strives to accommodate clients at all venues according to their particular needs and in a timely manner. There are times when complicated cases, such as when children are interviewed by child consultants or where financial or legal advice is suggested, could take weeks before a mediator convenes a meeting. Ordinarily three weeks would be a realistic time frame for clients who have open diaries and are well prepared.

RAQ shares with many organisations the experience of having high demand from separating parents during school term time and generally less during school holiday time. Clients who can adjust their diaries to be available at shorter notice for mediation sessions will understandably meet sooner than those who have a more complicated schedule and who may need to consult with other professionals before convening. RAQ always encourages clients to seek independent legal and financial advice.

RAQ’s Family Dispute Resolution practitioners are all trained to screen for domestic violence and assess whether mediation should proceed or not. The existence of violence in itself does not prevent clients meeting but other processes, including direct representation to the Family Court of Australia, are real options.
