Family Dispute Resolution

Research clearly shows that children whose parents are in continued conflict may develop more psychological problems than those who live in conflict-free homes regardless of whether parents are still together or separated. Thus, it is the conflict not the separation that negatively impacts on children.


If you have decided to separate from your partner, then consider child-focused Family Dispute Resolution to help you make decisions which are in the best interests of your children. Family Dispute Resolution can help you make parenting plans which suit your family’s situation and can help with decisions regarding property and finances.

Decisions you make can be interim and temporary as circumstances will probably change and you can revisit the arrangements at any time as your situation evolves. Or if you are ready, agreements can be permanent. 

A mediator can make the process more fluid, less stressful for all parties and provide valuable advice along the way.
