A report commissioned by the Attorney-General's Department to evaluate the Coordinated Family Dispute Resolution Pilot.
Parenting disputes involving issues of family violence are particularly challenging in legal proceedings. The Coordinated Family Dispute Resolution model was developed to provide a safe, non-adversarial, and child-sensitive means for parents to sort out their post-separation parenting disputes. The model was trialled in five sites across Australia. This report presents an evaluation of the model, examining whether the model addressed practitioner and family safety during the program, safe parenting arrangements, the best interests of children, and power imbalances between parents. The evaluation also examines challenges and advantages due to the interdisciplinary nature of the model.
