Families who are separated or in the process of change are often faced with making difficult decisions about parenting, care arrangements and division of property.

Family Dispute Resolution (FDR) assists parents and other family members to resolve issues in dispute.

The service is child-focused with the needs and interests of young people central to any agreements reached, and is guided by our accredited FDR Practitioners.

In 2008, changes to the family law system made Family Dispute Resolution a requirement before applications can be made to the Family Court for parenting orders. This includes applications seeking changes to existing parenting orders.

Centacare provides FDR support in Adelaide and Salisbury, and at our regional sites in Mount Gambier and Murray Bridge.

  • Family Dispute Resolution and support
