A Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner is a specialist in Family Law Mediation. They support couples through a non-adversarial, mediated resolution to their parenting and property disputes when they separate. Each of our mediators is a highly trained, skilled professional, comfortable in dealing with high conflict situations.
Family Dispute Resolution (FDR) is often referred to as “Family Law Mediation”. This should be your first contact when you are considering separation or divorce; you don’t have to go straight to a solicitor. At Bayside Mediation, a Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner will help you understand your rights and obligations in relation to Family Law in Australia.
Each Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner is registered with the Attorney General’s Department of the Federal Government, and is able help with any area of Family Law, not just mediation. This is because they have studied units of Family Law in order to achieve their Graduate Diploma, and have an excellent working knowledge of the Family Law Act. They will also advise should they think you need to seek legal representation.
