family law Family Dispute Resolution Service

On Friday 18 August 2017 the Federal Attorney-General announced a funding package of almost $10 million to assist with family dispute resolution. Perth will be one of the eight locations around Australia to pilot a new family dispute resolution service. Just over $6 million will be utilised towards the pilots.

This pilot is a part of the government’s $100 million commitment to reduce family violence, aiming to provide support to separated families, and to assist parents avoiding litigation in Court, and to improve outcomes from mediation.
