Mediation and Family Dispute Resolution Practitioners

If you are a parent, you have ongoing responsibilities for your children under the age of 18, regardless of whether you are separated, divorced, re-married, re-partnered or have never lived together.

In most circumstances, the Family Law requires parents to engage in Family Dispute Resolution to try and reach an agreement in relation to the arrangements for their children, prior to issuing Family Court proceedings for Parenting Orders. Family Dispute Resolution or FDR for short, is a special form of Mediation that adopts a child focused approach with the aim of building a safe environment in which children can live, learn and mature.

Whilst there is currently no obligation to engage in Mediation prior to issuing Family Court proceedings for Property Orders, it could assist you to reach a solution to your property dispute quickly and without the need for costly Family Court proceedings.

During Mediation and Family Dispute Resolution we will:

  • Not make any decision for the parties, coerce them to enter into an agreement or act in a legal capacity for either of them.
  • Provide a relaxed and informal environment that allows parties to express their views, explain what is important to them and why.
  • Assist both parties to generate options to resolve their dispute.
