Family Dispute Resolution (Mediation)
Family Dispute Resolution (Mediation) is a process whereby an accredited mediator helps separated couples and families reach agreements about children’s matters and property matters. Family Dispute Resolution (Mediation) can provide a less stressful and less expensive way of making lasting agreements.
Separated families who have a dispute about parenting arrangements are required to make a genuine effort (where appropriate) to resolve the dispute through Family Dispute Resolution.
Family Dispute Resolution (Mediation) is strictly confidential and evidence of any communications made throughout will not be admissible in court proceedings, subject to certain exceptions.
Unifam provides Family Counselling and Family Dispute Resolution (Mediation) under the Family Law Act.
With over 25 years experience in the field and eleven locations, including three Family Relationship Centres, Unifam is one of the leading providers of Family Dispute Resolution (Mediation) in NSW.
If the parties have made a genuine effort to resolve parenting issues through Family Dispute Resolution (Mediation) but have been unsuccessful, Unifam’s accredited mediators are authorised to issue Section 60I Certificates.
What qualifications do Unifam’s mediators have?
Unifam’s mediators are highly experienced professionals with tertiary qualifications in law or a relevant social science, such as psychology or social work. Additionally, they have completed specialised mediation training and are accredited as Family Dispute Resolution Practitioners with the Australian Attorney-General’s Department.
