Family Dispute Resolution
Family Dispute Resolution (FDR) Process
The FDR process begins with an individual intake session where the FDR practitioner will get a better understanding about your situation and issues in dispute, identify any risks and vulnerabilities as well as any adjustments required to make the process as safe and supportive for you as possible and help you prepare for the mediation session. This is also an opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the mediation process.
After meeting with both parties individually the FDR practitioner will make an assessment whether your situation is suitable for FDR.
If determined to be suitable we will discuss availability of each party and schedule the joint mediation session at mutually suitable time.
Family Dispute Resolution (FDR) helps people respectfully discuss parenting and/or financial issues, consider options and reach mutually suitable agreements which take everyone’s interests into consideration. Best interests of the child is the guiding principle of family law mediation.
