Family Dispute Resolution Clinic

The Bond Law Family Dispute Resolution Clinic provides high-quality, caring, client-centred specialist family dispute resolution services at a low cost to achieve the best possible outcomes for clients in conflict and for the entire community as a result.

The Clinic aims to assist families and children through family dispute resolution (FDR) to overcome the challenges associated with separation, and to establish effective post-separation parenting arrangements for the family’s well-being into the future. The Clinic is dedicated to reducing the negative effects of dispute and conflict, and improving and strengthening relationships.

The Clinic also aims to provide Bond FDR students with supervised workplace experience with a focus on best practice and safety. FDRP trainees are able to do a maximum of 20 hours of supervised practice in the Bond University FDR Clinic.  

The services will be offered online so parties will need appropriate access to relevant technology. If you have any questions, please email [email protected]

Objectives of the Clinic

  1. To provide high quality professionally supervised family dispute resolution services to clients in Queensland and northern NSW.
  2. To provide Bond FDR students with the opportunity to complete their required hours of supervised FDR practice. (The supervised FDR practice is a course requirement for satisfactory completion of the Family Dispute Resolution training which is conducted by the Bond University Faculty of Law Centre for Dispute Resolution.)
  3. To provide students with an opportunity to gain practical experience in a controlled and supportive environment and prepare them for FDR practice.
