Family, friends and finances – these are some of the most important things in life. But, sometimes when they mix, disagreements and disputes happen.
Disputes involving trusts, wills and estates are often the result of a communication breakdown, causing a breakdown in relationships. Differences in values and ideas, or plans that were made for the whānau which have never been really spoken about, can cause frustrating misunderstandings.
Rather than going through the stress, delay and expense of court action, mediation at Fair Way is usually a much better pathway to resuming communication and resolving disputes, restoring those once-close relationships. This is especially important if you want or need to get along well in the future, for example, as trustees of a family trust.
Our name, ‘kia tau’, means ‘to settle, to resolve, to calm’. So, it’s our job to resolve any issues or disputes you may have – including disputes over trusts, wills and estates. As Aotearoa New Zealand’s dispute resolution experts, every day we support Kiwis to navigate conflict. We are here for you, too.
