_________________________________________________________________

Prior to making an application to the Family Law Courts about a parenting and property matters, parents need to demonstrate that they have attempted to resolve the issues in dispute.  Family Dispute Resolution (FDR) is not appropriate in cases where there is family violence, child abuse, power imbalance or when there is a reason for urgency.
FDR is a process which supports parents to resolve their parenting matters together with the help of a Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner.  
Family Dispute Resolution Practitioners are professional in conflict management who are trained to provide child-focused services. Our FDRP's are accredited by the Federal Attorney Generals Department and meet the standards required by the Family Law Act (Family Dispute Resolution Practitioners) Regulations 2008.
During the FDR process, parties identify and discuss issues in dispute, develop and consider options for resolution of these issues, explore the appropriateness and usefulness of these options and agree to options that are in the best interests of the child.
At the conclusion of the FDR process  a written Parenting Plan is created to capture any agreements reached.
In some cases more than one joint FDR sessions is necessary to reach agreements.
Some parents may also opt to participate in parenting coordination or post separation counselling to assist them to successfully implement their Parenting Plan.
Parents may also choose to formalise the Parenting Plan and make an application for a Consent Order.
In some cases, the Practitioner may also issue a s 60I certificate, this certificate is required in most cases in order to make an application to the Court.
