Tracey-Leigh Wessels

I am an Attorney & Mediator from Durban, South Africa. I have been involved in the field of Family & Divorce Mediation since 1996 and I mediate the full spectrum of family & divorce-related disputes including pre-conception reproductive law & surrogacy disputes, relationship & marital disputes, divorce disputes, maintenance disputes, and family disputes involving the care of the elderly.

I am the holder of two Masters Degrees in Law and Law & Social Work both of which Masters focused primarily on aspects pertaining to Children and the Law. I believe that it is critical that recognition is given to the child’s voice and that the child’s best interests is safeguarded within every process impacting on that child. As a Mediator, I assist my clients in bringing Peace and Understanding to the Table.

Family & Divorce Attorney and Mediator.
Mediator since 1996
In 2010, I changed the focus of my work from that of Divorce & Family Law Attorney to that of Full-time Divorce & Family Mediator.
I have retained my status as an Attorney purely for purposes of being able to continue with my High Court work in the field of Surrogate Motherhood.
