Family Relationship Centres
Family Relationship Centres (FRC) commenced in 2006 in preparation for changes to the Family Law Act. The Act made it necessary for separated parents and significant others to attempt Family Dispute Resolution (FDR) before filing an application with the Family Court of Australia or Federal Circuit Court relating to children’s matters.
Other roles of Family Relationships Centres include provision of information and appropriate referrals for people affected by separation. FRC services are provided by Relationships Australia Tasmania and have primarily focused on providing dispute resolution relating to children’s matters only.
