Family Dispute Resolution (FDR) is the legal term used to describe services that help people who are experiencing or may experience separation or divorce resolve all or some of their disputes. FDR can help you to agree on a range of issues relating to property, money, and most importantly – your children.
Family Mediation is one form of FDR. Family mediation is the process used by a Practitioner to help parents resolve issues relating to their children. These issues may include who the children will live with, when the children will spend time with the other parent, which school the children will attend, what extra-curricular activities the children attend, who pays for what, how the children will communicate with each parent, how the parents will communicate and the list goes on.
Family Mediation is designed to save parents long drawn out expensive Family Law Court processes which leave all family members drained and often leave parents feeling as though they are not in control of how their children will be raised.
