The FDR process aims to:

For parties where children are involved, one of the major benefits of the FDR process is that it gives the separating parties the ability to make better decisions about their children.

FDR is now compulsory under Australian Family Law, and separating families with children must make a genuine attempt to resolve their issues through mediation in a Family Dispute Resolution Provider.

Bridge Mediation can provide a registered FDR Practitioner to assist couples and families with resolving parenting, financial, property and other disputes following separation.


What our clients are saying about our mediation services
  • I retained Chris to assist in resolving a seemingly implacable “disharmony” between two valued employees that was significantly impacting my office in Sydney. He saw each employee alone and then had a third meeting with both of them. The change was extraordinary, not only was “peace” brought to the office but they became the best of friends and remain so. On this one episode alone I would unreservedly recommend Chris.
