Walker Webb Family Law Mediation 

Specialised Family Law Mediation Services

Family law expertise with a unique perspective.

Compassionate, pragmatic and dignified solutions.

Myles Walker and Susie Webb are recent former Judicial Registrars of the Federal Circuit Family Court of Australia (FCFCoA).  Combined, we have more than three and a half decades of experience in the family law sector, both previously working in pre-eminent and boutique family law practices, as well as in academia before joining the Court.

With extensive family law experience – and both being nationally accredited mediators, we guide parties through a professional, dignified and compassionate mediation process, with an evaluative element – where appropriate.

Child-focused practitioners taking a collaborative & compassionate approach

Family law mediation is designed to create a safe space for disputes to be resolved. Our mediation practitioners understand the emotional and financial challenges that family law disputes can bring, and our goal is to provide a mediation experience that benefits both parties and is based on impartiality and care for both people and their circumstances.

We take a collaborative approach, where we communicate with both parties to understand their unique perspectives. Then, with compassion, we guide your mediation to a child and future-focused agreement that benefits both parties.

Our balanced and caring approach

As family lawyers with extensive experience working both as lawyers in practice and as Judicial Registrar’s within the Family Law Court, we have a deep and unique perspective as to the impact litigation has on families. We draw on our unique perspectives to assist parties to formulate the best possible solutions which deliver long lasting and positive results with a minimum of stress and cost.  

We are pragmatic, empathetic and skilled at neutrally assisting parties reach resolutions in all disputes about family law. We are well known for our balanced and caring approach.  

We understand that separation is an emotionally difficult time, especially where children are involved.  If there are medical and learning challenges for children we draw on our extensive experiences in dealing with these complex matters to assist with solutions that consider the uniqueness of the circumstances.

In complex parenting matters we also offer the services of a child expert to be involved in mediation to ensure parents have social science expertise available to them when making decisions. A strength of mediation is its ability to prevent the escalation of conflict and empower parties by offering them certainty and self-determined resolutions.
