No waiting lists for our family dispute resolution and mediation servicesMay 14, 2018
Did you know we offer family dispute resolution and mediation services?
Family Dispute Resolution (FDR) is a voluntary process that assists separating families to discuss issues and generate options to reach agreements involving children, families, property and finances.
We specialise in property and parenting matters and our fees are very reasonable. Our highly skilled practitioners have law and finance backgrounds. There are no waiting lists and our clients deal directly with the mediator from the first phone call. We are very unique in that we provide a holistic approach to each family and can provide referrals and services to our varied Family Centre services.
The Family Law Act requires separating families to make a genuine effort to resolve their parenting issues at FDR before they apply to the court for a Parenting Order (some exceptions apply). If you are unable to reach an agreement at FDR, and your matter involves children, you will need a S60i Certificate from an FDR practitioner to make an application to the court. Currently there are no legal requirements to attempt to resolve financial issues through FDR before applying to court, however many people find it useful to undertake FDR as a more positive, less costly alternative to court.
We have offices in Brookvale, Naremburn and Waitara.
