ADR in the Federal Circuit and Family Court in 2022
Thursday 18 August 2022
The new Family Law Rules have meant that parties should not file proceedings until they have engaged in dispute resolution, exchanged documents and made a genuine attempt to settle the dispute outside of litigation. As part of creating a consistent internal case management pathway, dispute resolution has been placed at the forefront to ensure just outcomes are achieved for parties in an efficient manner. It is an expectation of the court that both parties and their legal representatives make every effort to participate in dispute resolution. This presentation addresses the role that Mediators can play in relation to adapting to these new Court Rules, in particular in relation to the stage of pre-litigation procedure.
