Join our Panel of Independent Mediators
Divorce Partners refers mediation clients to professional mediators. We are expanding rapidly and always need more mediators to join our Panel.
As you can see from our website, our core conviction at Divorce Partners is that separating couples are far better to work for a settlement using neutral advisors rather than going straight to lawyers and the courts.
We offer a range of services to get them there. Mediation is one of those central services.
Due to growing volumes, we need more Mediators. We offer you the opportunity to receive referred clients from us.
We'd like to send Client Referrals to you
We only occasionally perform mediations directly ourselves. We don't have a monopoly on mediation skills! But we are good at marketing - our volumes of enquiries are growing.
So we are expanding our Panel of Independent Mediators.
If you are keen to be offered new clients for your mediation services, then please make contact and start a discussion with us about joining our Panel.
We'd like to discuss with you our approach to helping couples reach settlements, so we can check whether our styles are compatible. And we have some basic expectations, which we can run through with you.
So just use the Form at the bottom of the page to start a conversation.
Other services you may find helpful
Mediation is just one of the services we offer to our prospects and clients.
Although we undertake only some mediations ourselves, we provide several services that may be attractive to you as an Independent Mediator, as follows:
On-boarding for financial mediation clients
We offer Mediators an On-boarding Service for clients who will work with you on financial settlements. Essentially, we take care of the preparation of their financial information for you in readiness for mediation - a task that can be tedious for you.
The On-boarding Service includes:
The information is provided to you in Excel or Google Sheets format and also in PDF format. Turnaround time is 24-48 hours. Naturally we operate under strict Confidentiality Terms.
We charge a flat fee of $100 +GST for the service.
Our Range Read service can be extremely helpful in preparing clients for financial mediation. You can read about the Range Read in detail on this website, but essentially the service is a short report that helps guide clients to understand what a "normal" range should be for them in terms of the proportional division of their wealth between them.
It has an "anchoring" effect. It is highly influential in nudging the parties away from extreme or unrealistic expectations about what they "ought" to receive in their settlement deal. No doubt you've experienced this issue many times.
Providing a neutral objective reading of their situation, prior to commencing the mediation, can significantly reduce your burden in trying to find a consensus position. When the couple enters the mediation already aware of the ballpark range (not a precise figure), it can save you some hours of stress and considerably reduce resistance from one or both of the parties.
Using the Report as part of your discussion can improve the dynamics and reduce the sense that one or both of the clients are fighting with you. You will find it helpful to position the Report as independent of your own opinions, or as external validation of views you intend to put to the clients.
Clearly if you want to utilise the Range Read, you should order it a few days in advance of your first mediation session. You may order it directly yourself or ask your clients to order it.
As you can see on our website, we help produce formal documentation of settlement agreements. This includes both Consent Orders and Binding Financial Agreements.
Our fees for these services are generally less expensive than other firms.
And no, we don't "unstitch" deals. You've done the hard work securing an agreement. We just take care of the formalisation process.
We can take your mediated Heads of Agreement through to detailed format as prescribed in the Family Law Act.
Since we are not a law firm, we are able to liaise directly and quickly with both parties in order to finalise the myriad small items that need to be pinned down. This substantially reduces time and friction.
Yes, we do include lawyers in our review process. Just as we have a panel of independent mediators, we have a panel of independent lawyers who will review the work before sign-off. We brief in the matters to the law firms once all the preparatory work has been completed. Where Consent Orders are being used, we'll arrange electronic lodgement with the Court. Where a Binding Financial Agreement is being used, we'll arrange for Certificates of Advice prior to signing.
We charge clients fixed fees, inclusive of the law firms' fees, court filing fees, liaison with super funds and property title searches where applicable.
Your clients would jointly contract us directly, then we provide a Referral Fee of 10% to you for sending us the clients.
Since our fixed fees are generally between $2,500 and $4,000 per client couple, this means your Referral Fee will usually be between $250 and $400 per referral.
