Family Dispute Resolution is a process of mediation where a neutral and unbiased third party (a mediator defined under the Family Law Act 1975 (Cth) as a Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner) assists separated parents in discussing matters relating to their children and property. As a form of assisted negotiations, the mediator’s role is to provide structure to the process, as well as help parents in communicating with each other within a safe environment. Agreements that are reached are typed and provided to the parents.
All of our mediators are Family Dispute Resolution Practitioners who are duly registered with the Department of the Federal Attorney-General. They are authorised to provide Family Dispute Resolution and issue section 60I certificates in relation to parenting matters.
