Family Dispute Resolution

Family dispute resolution is a first step for many disputes involving the care and contact of children.

To gain access to the Family Court for issues of care and contact, legislation now requires most disputing parties to attempt family dispute resolution - mediation for family cases. There are exceptions to this - where there are issues of violence, where a party is trying to remove a child from New Zealand, for example.

AMINZ has been appointed by the government as an Approved Dispute Resolution Provider. This means that we provide the qualification for people to become Family Dispute Resolution Providers. These people are expert in mediation and family issues.
