WHAT IS UNTYING THE KNOT?


A unique family law mediation solution, Untying the Knot is about untangling your relationship, rather than cutting the rope.

It's about dancing together at your daughter's wedding, and both being at your grandchildren's birthday parties, not sitting at opposite ends of the room.

We offer fixed fee family law mediation options to help you reach an appropriate, thoughtful agreement.

We all know the damage that can be done to families by the family court system.
But we have also seen too many times parties attend family dispute resolution or family law mediation and reach
agreement in the spirit of goodwill, only to have everything fall apart when it comes time to convert that agreement into court orders.

If parties have not had legal advice prior to family law mediation or family dispute resolution,
then sometimes they reach agreements at mediation that simply won’t be approved by the Family Court.

Sometimes with the benefit of legal advice, people believe that the agreement they reached in mediation was not appropriate.

Situations like these result in the time, effort and money put into the agreement being thrown away.

But more than that, when you have children, it can create mistrust and resentment.

We believe every family has the right to reach a family law agreement in a way that minimises the impact of divorce on their children.

Untying the Knot was designed for families.
