As Family Mediation Practitioners we provide service for people who are in conflict to provide support in their communication with each other about what is important for them and how to make decisions relevant to resolving their dispute. We aim to help clients to sort out issues and develop acceptable solutions, that potentially lead to mutually satisfactory agreements. As part of the process we might recommend Family Constellation to help you see issues beyond your individual system.
Family Dispute Resolution (FDR) is now compulsory, meaning that people who wish to resolve disputes relevant to their children (parenting matters), are now required to attend Family Dispute Resolution and make a genuine effort to resolve issues, before they progress through the court system. If you want to apply to the court for a parenting order, you will need the Section 60I certificate from a registered Family Dispute Resolution practitioner to confirm that an attempt at Family Dispute Resolution was made. Section 60I certificates serve the sole purpose of allowing people to file an application in court.
