Mediation in family matters
ProBono.Org encourages clients to resolve matters through mediation rather than litigation wherever possible, especially in matters involving children – the Children’s Act promotes mediation because of the destructive effects of divorce on children.
ProBono.Org draws on a team of voluntary mediators and the Family Mediation Forum, an electronic forum of pro bono mediators, attorneys and advocates.
Mediation services are available as required as part of ProBono.Org’s daily work. ProBono.Org also organises mediation training for attorneys.
