Dispute Resolution and Mediation in Family Law

Mediation and family dispute resolution

Mediators and family dispute resolution providers are neutral, third parties who can assist you and your former partner make a parenting plan. It can be a quick means of reaching an agreement without costly legal and court fees.

Mediation and counselling may not be suitable for situations involving domestic violence and you should discuss your options with the mediator or ask for an exemption if you don’t believe you can negotiate a safe agreement for you or your children. You can ask for shuttle mediation where you and your former partner are in separate rooms or one of you is on the telephone.

If you do decide to try mediation it is vital that you tell your mediator about any family violence or any family violence orders so they can work out whether it is appropriate for you to attend mediation.

If you would like legal help regarding dispute resolution and mediation in family law matters, then please complete your free legal enquiry form on the left, or click here.

If you are going to court you will need to provide a certificate from an accredited family dispute resolution provider to confirm that you and your former partner have attended mediation to attempt to resolve your issues before you can commence legal action in the court.

A mediator or family dispute resolution provider may be able to also help if you and your former partner cannot agree on how your assets should be divided. In circumstances where your assets are complex or where superannuation needs to be divided you may need to seek legal advice about how to obtain orders to give effect to that agreement.

The requirement to attend mediation may not apply in certain circumstances such as:

  • Your matter is urgent
  • A child has been abused or is at risk of abuse
  • Domestic violence or risk of family violence
  • A child has been abducted or is at risk of being abducted

If any of the above circumstances apply to you seek legal advice immediately.

Family Dispute Resolution Process

Family Dispute Resolution is a process by which people who are in conflict can be helped to communicate with each other about what is important for them and how to make decisions about resolving their dispute.

Family Dispute Resolution (FDR) is now compulsory, in the sense that people who wish to go to court to resolve disputes in relation to their children (parenting matters), are now required to first attend FDR, and make a 'genuine effort' to resolve their disputes.  Some exceptions to this requirement apply - for example, in situations involving family violence or child abuse, or in urgent matters.

Family Dispute Resolution Certificates

Family Dispute Resolution Practitioners provide clients with a supportive atmosphere and a method of talking to one another, to assist them to sort out the issues and come up with acceptable solutions, and make mutually satisfactory agreements.

The family dispute resolution process involves:

the parties listening to each other's point of view without interruption

  • identifying issues which need to be resolved
  • sharing of relevant information
  • exploring ideas and options
  • testing possible solutions
  • putting decisions and agreements in writing.

The role of family dispute resolution practitioners

Family Dispute Resolution Practitioners are highly-skilled people from a variety of professional backgrounds, such as law and the social sciences. They are trained in resolving disputes relating to families. The expertise of family dispute resolution practitioners allows for a diverse range of disputes to be dealt with, broadly relating to children, finance or property matters.

Family Dispute Resolution Practitioners can either work alone or with another practitioner. They do not give legal advice but will explore general principles that apply to couples who are separating.  They may give advice in relation to children and parenting matters, focusing on 'the best interests of the child'.

If you would like legal help regarding dispute resolution and mediation in family law matters, then please complete your free legal enquiry form on the left, or click here.

The Family Dispute Resolution Practitioners are impartial and even-handed. They control the process, not the content that is discussed, and they maintain the confidentiality of the process, subject to limitations established in law.  They are solution and future-focused in helping the parties resolve their dispute. The practitioners ensure that everybody agrees to the decisions being made.

What can participants expect from the Family dispute resolution?

Family dispute resolution is facilitated by an independent third party and decisions made are not legally binding. Everyone gets the opportunity to express his or her own point of view and is free to talk about issues of concern, with everyone present.

Participants must be willing to listen to the other party and be genuinely willing to negotiate and commit to reaching a solution and considering a compromise. Participants must be prepared to follow the process.

Benefits of Family dispute resolution

Family dispute resolution has a number of benefits. For instance, it:

  • saves money and delays, because it is cheaper and quicker than the Court process.
  • promotes co-operation and improves communication that can enhance an ongoing relationship which assists parenting and other relationships.
  • provides a structure in which future disputes can be resolved more readily.
  • maintains an individual's control in the decision-making process: there are no imposed decisions.
  • is generally less stressful or traumatic than court proceedings.
  • is a more effective means of conflict resolution: people are less likely to breach agreements that they have made themselves.

The alternatives to family dispute resolution are:

  • do nothing
  • continue the conflict
  • seek the assistance of friends in resolving the dispute
  • seek Arbitration, which is a less formal legal process to resolve the dispute than going to Court
  • instruct lawyers to negotiate agreements on your behalf
  • commence court proceedings
  • resolve the issues yourselves, without professional assistance.

It can be difficult to adjust to your new circumstances and this can impact on your mental health.

Worrying about the impact of relationship breakdown, separation and divorce on children can add to the stress of the situation.

There are a range of services available which provide assistance and support to those experiencing relationship breakdown, separation and divorce. Family Relationship Centres are a first port of call for families seeking help. Through information and referral, the centres help families strengthen relationships and deal with relationship difficulties.

Changes to Australia's family law system introduced since July 2006 means that individuals wanting to apply to the court for a parenting order must first attempt family dispute resolution if appropriate. If family dispute resolution is not appropriate or an agreement not reached then a certificate can be obtained from a registered family dispute resolution practitioner confirming an attempt at family dispute resolution was made.

Note: There are some exceptions to this requirement, such as cases involving family violence or child abuse.

Family Relationship centres can also refer individuals, couples and families to a range of other helpful services to enhance family relationships.
