Family Dispute Resolution

Family Dispute Resolution (FDR) is a compulsory process prior to going to Court, in relation to children’s care arrangements*. There are exceptions to this, however, in most cases parents are expected to make a genuine effort to resolve their differences in regards to their children’s care and development outside of the Court system.

The Mount Gambier Family Relationship Centre provides Family Dispute Resolution (mediation) services to the South East of South Australia and some of Western Victoria to support separated parents and families to develop child focused care and parenting arrangements for children. We also now provide mediation for property and financial matters in conjunction with children’s matters. Tto access this parents must also be using our Family Dispute Resolution service to mediate children’s matters (care and parenting arrangements for children).
