You will require this accreditation if you intend to operate as a family dispute resolution practitioner. The law requires separating families who have a dispute about children, or are seeking changes to an existing parenting order, to make a genuine effort to sort it out through family dispute resolution. A family dispute resolution practitioner is an independent person who helps people affected by separation or divorce resolve their parenting disputes.
To operate as, and be called a family dispute resolution practitioner, you must meet the accreditation standards, which includes having been assessed as competent in units that involve screening and assessing families for family violence and child abuse.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
