What is Family Dispute Resolution?

Are you experiencing issues related to:

Divorce or separation?

Arrangements for the children?

Division of assets for the future?

Child support?

Communication?


Family Dispute Resolution can allow you to resolve these issues with a focus on benefits for yourself, your children, your family and your future. Family Dispute Resolution (FDR) is a form of mediation in which an accredited Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner takes on the role of mediator to assist people in resolving their family dispute.


The mediator improves the method and quality of decision making between the people in order to facilitate the negotiation of an agreement that is satisfactory to both parties. The mediator is impartial and the participants remain in control of the topics of discussion, as well as the details of any agreement.


Family Dispute Resolution is an opportunity to resolve disputes in an informal environment without the need to go to court. It is a solution-focused approach in which the participants explore various ideas and options with the aim of reaching an agreement. Family Dispute Resolution can help to resolve matters faster and is often more inexpensive and less stressful than attempting to resolve matters in court.
