Derek, a client

Thank you so very much, you provided me with a great start in my fight for my littlens. I cannot thank you enough! They are so much happier now they have almost equal shared care from both me and their mother.”


A High Court judge:

"Mr Barry was granted right of audience, and represented the appellant extremely well. He was articulate and well-prepared. I am grateful for him keeping the strong feelings out of the case."

Andrew, a client

John, i cannot thank you enough for the work you have done for me and your enthusiasm and beliefs for the work you do is probably the only thing that made me carry on .”

If parents rush to achieve a legal solution after relationship breakdown this is often disastrous for both of them and their children. The adversarial nature of the court process usually leads to polarisation and entrenchment of both parties. Combined with the delays and costs of court proceedings, mediation is always the better option.


Mediation can play a pivotal role in helping parents work together to achieve a workable solution without going to court.



On 5/4/2011, new court rules came into effect which require anyone considering making a court application to attend a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting first of all.

Where the application is urgent, or no mediator is available in the area within 15 days, or certain other exceptions apply, this requirement can be waived, and an application can be made to court immediately.


We can guide you through this mediation process.
