Family Dispute Resolution, Mediation & Arbitration
Our Family Law lawyers regularly act in Alternative Dispute Resolution conferences, helping both parties receive practical outcomes without going to Court. In addition to this, we have practitioners who are qualified to chair Mediations and Arbitrations.
Parties to parenting disputes, who are unable to resolve their dispute between themselves, are required to attend upon a Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner prior to commencing proceedings in the Family Court. There are exceptions to this requirement – namely, given situations of risk to the child.
Whilst places like Relationships Australia convene Family Dispute Resolution, it is possible to expedite the process by attending a private Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner. Our Family Law lawyers are able to recommend Family Dispute Resolution Practitioners and provide you with the information you need to make decisions in the best interests of your child.
Whilst litigation is sometimes the only way, if possible, forms of Alternate Dispute Resolution such as Mediation and Arbitration can prove to be a more cost-effective, timely way of resolving a Family Law dispute, whether financial or child-related.
At Dwyer Durack, we offer family mediation services to former couples following a relationship breakdown or divorce. Providing an alternate pathway to settle your finances, debts and property loans, mediation is a respectful and unbiased approach for many couples.
