We also want to reassure you that we continue to be fully operational and that we will continue to provide our full suite of dispute resolution services during this time.

Having well developed online dispute resolution options, this is in many ways business as usual for us as we focus on providing a seamless service, regardless of where our case management staff, mediators, arbitrators, and other dispute resolution practitioners are working.

We know you are working through similar challenges to ours and that these are uncertain times for everyone. From all of us here we send our thoughts to you, your teams and families.

We have developed a range of FAQs for FDR Mediation which cover the questions we are being asked most often – read them here. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance to you and we will keep you informed with any further updates.

Relationship Property

Resolving relationship property disputes in the courts can be a lengthy, costly, and public affair.

Parties wanting to resolve disputes as to relationship property and the division of assets on separation may choose to use private dispute resolution services instead.

The FDR Centre has developed a specialist private dispute resolution service for parties to relationship property disputes (and other Family Law matters such as trusts, wills, and estates) that is robust and certain, yet innovative in its commonsense approach to resolving these challenging types of disputes promptly and privately.

The three options available are Family Law Arbitration, Family Law Mediation, and a hybrid process – Family Law Arb-Med.

Any separation process can be difficult and stressful for the individuals concerned as well as their wider family networks. If you think you need a little more help and support, you may also wish to consider counselling services at this time.
