When facing a family conflict, it’s easy to think that the courtroom is the only place where issues can be definitively resolved. However, our family dispute resolution services in Brisbane offer several advantages over traditional litigation that can make it a preferable option for many.

More Control Over the Outcome

In a courtroom, decisions are ultimately made by a judicial officer who may not become fully aware of the intricacies and emotional complexities of your specific family situation, due to the nature of the process, what is relevant, what is admissible etc in that process. 

Family dispute resolution empowers you and your family to retain control over the decisions that affect your lives. The process is designed to facilitate discussion and reach a mutual agreement that respects everyone’s needs and interests.

Speed of Resolution

Litigation can be a protracted process, taking months or even years to conclude. This lengthy timeline can not only be emotionally draining but can also create prolonged periods of uncertainty for your family. Family dispute resolution, on the other hand, can often be completed in a shorter time frame, allowing you to move forward more quickly.


Legal battles can be financially draining, with costs that can skyrocket as time passes. Our family dispute resolution services in Brisbane are generally a more cost-effective alternative, focusing on constructive dialogue rather than expensive legal manoeuvring. This means you can allocate resources where they’re truly needed: in starting the next chapter of your life.

Daykin Family Law’s team of expert mediators and lawyers are trained in family dispute resolution processes, associated techniques and methods, ensuring that you’re getting the most efficient, cost-effective, and personally tailored service possible. Trust us to guide you through this critical juncture with the utmost professionalism and care.

How We Can Assist

Every family is unique, and so are the challenges they face. That’s why at Daykin Family Law, we offer a range of services tailored to meet the specific needs of each situation. Our comprehensive approach aims to resolve disputes as amicably as possible, focusing on the best interests of all parties involved.

Parenting Arrangements

Navigating co-parenting during or after separation can be one of the most emotionally taxing experiences for a family. We facilitate constructive dialogue to help parents arrive at agreements that serve the best interests of their children, encompassing everything from time arrangement to educational choices and financial aspects of raising children.

Property Settlements

Property settlements and financial disputes are often complex, involving a lot of emotions and high stakes. Our expert lawyers guide parties through mediation which can achieve an equitable distribution of assets and liabilities, considering not just legal entitlements but also any unique familial circumstances.

Child Support

Child support is an essential element that needs to be thoughtfully handled to ensure the well-being of the children involved. We can assist in creating a fair and balanced child support agreement that both parties can commit to.

Spousal Maintenance

For some separated couples, spousal maintenance is a necessary point of discussion and resolution. We provide a neutral ground to negotiate these sensitive matters, helping you arrive at an arrangement that is financially sustainable and appropriate.

Other Family Matters

In addition to these common issues, we also extend our services to mediate other family matters like relocation cases, grandparent rights, and even disputes involving separation and family businesses.

By choosing Daykin Family Law for your family dispute resolution needs in Brisbane, you’re choosing a team with an impeccable reputation for excellence, a deep understanding of the law, and a genuine commitment to helping you reach resolutions that pave the way for a more harmonious future.

The terms “mediation” and “family dispute resolution” (FDR) are often used interchangeably, but they are not identical processes. Mediation is a broader concept that encompasses facilitated negotiations between any two or more disputing parties, whether they are involved in commercial, civil, or family matters. In mediation, a neutral third party helps the disputing parties talk through their issues, exploring options etc, in hopes of reaching a mutually agreeable solution.

On the other hand, family dispute resolution is a specialised form of mediation which is governed by legislation in Australia. Unlike general mediation, which can deal with a wide range of disputes, FDR focuses exclusively on family issues such as parenting arrangements, child support arrangements and can extend to property settlement (division of property).

The cost of family dispute resolution can vary depending on the complexity of the issues involved, the duration of the sessions, and the mediator engaged. We recommend contacting us for a more specific quote tailored to your situation.

Preparation is key for a successful family dispute resolution session. Before the session, it’s advisable to:

  • List the issues you want to address.
  • Gather any relevant documents, like disclosure, financial records or parenting plans.
  • Prepare emotionally by identifying your concerns and desired outcomes.
  • Consult with your lawyer, if you have one, to understand your legal rights and responsibilities.

Daykin Family Law can guide you through all the preparatory steps to ensure you’re ready for the session.

Yes, grandparents can attend family dispute resolution sessions if their involvement is relevant to the issues being discussed, such as parenting, seeking time with grandchildren or even as a support person. Their inclusion in the process would need to be agreed upon by all parties involved if they are not a party to the mediation.
