Family Dispute Resolution

Centacare Catholic Family Services

Parents and children who are living apart often have to deal with the stress of separation as well as making difficult decisions about parenting/care arrangements and/or division of property.

Family Dispute Resolution is an alternative way of discussing the issues following separation that aims to avoid the financial and emotional costs of becoming involved in legal actions.

An accredited, qualified Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner (FDRP) guides the process of discussion, supports both parents and family members, and remains impartial to the outcomes while facilitating that those involved reach their own agreements.

We deliver responsive, flexible and effective mediation services to the SA community without regard to religion, race, culture, sexuality, gender identity or economic circumstance.

9am to 5pm Monday, Tuesday and Friday and 9am to 8pm Wednesday and Thursday.

After hours appointments available

Centacare Family Dispute Resolution Service is partly funded by the Federal Government. As this funding does not cover all costs, a fee may be charged. A schedule of fees is available on our website or please contact Centacare.

FDRPs assist parents and families to reach a resolution that is safe and in the best interest of their children. This can be about their living arrangements, general care needs, schooling or other issues related to the children.

Grandparents and other significant parties may also use the service for children whose parents have separated.
