It is not just what we do that counts, but how we do it. 

Here at the FDR Centre, our vision is to:

  • provide timely, professional, cost effective family dispute resolution services;
  • assist families to self-resolve matters; 
  • if children are involved, put their welfare and best interests first;
  • achieve positive and lasting outcomes for individuals and / or family/whānau members without recourse to the Family Court; and
  • foster learning, collegiality and professional development for the providers of our FDR services.

Support
Giving all those who use and deliver our services the maximum support.
