Family Dispute Resolution (Mediation)
The FDR service provides confidential information, support, referral and Dispute Resolution (mediation) in relation to:
– property settlement
– financial matters
– disputes between family members including Elder Mediation
– parenting arrangements
Who this service is for
Anyone can contact Relationships Australia Tasmania with the view of entering into mediation or dispute resolution with another party. However, it is really important to make sure that Family Dispute Resolution is appropriate for your situation.
FDR involving children is funded by the Australian Government so, in one of our programs, fees are waived for a specific number of sessions. Following this, fees are charged.
The Mediation Service is a fee-for-service program. Any concerns about your ability to pay the fee can be discussed with your dispute resolution practitioner (mediator) please let us know if you have a concession card.
If you have any concerns or questions regarding fees you can give us a call on 1300 364 277.
