Family Law Disputes – Non Litigious Alternatives

Posted: October 24, 2018 1:37 am Categories:

Today, anyone caught up in a family law dispute needs to look at the alternatives to going to court.

There are alternatives that may work quicker, better and much less stressful and costly for the parties.

There are specialists in the field of managing and resolving family law disputes outside the court system. We offer such a service.


Investigate this and save you years of delay, stress and legal costs.


In the Australian newspaper on 24 October 2018 the paper’s legal affairs writer reports that both the Family Court and the Federal Circuit Court currently  have about a year’s worth of family law

cases and 1-3 year delays are now the norm to get these family law disputes finally resolved.


Chronic under funding of the courts and  lawyers who have a penchant for litigating most disputes are the key drivers of the current mess.


The stakeholders are crying out for change.


They are urging all family law lawyers to make more effort to try and resolve family law disputes via negotiation, conciliation, mediation and arbitration.

Apparently the problem is so bad now that even appointing more judges will not make much of a dent in the huge backlog.


If you find yourself getting caught up in this nightmare please call us to discuss your case as see if we can help you to avoid it.
