Family Law is the area of law that deals with the relationship between people. There are many different aspects of the Family Law which includes but is not limited to parenting matters, property and/or financial matters, spousal maintenance, child support and the like.
The Family Law is governed by a body of statutes enacted by the Government as well as case law. Such laws provide the framework under which all Family Law applications are dealt with.
Generally the Courts will encourage parties to resolve any Family Law disputes by way of mediation or counselling. The parties are actively encouraged to partake in alternative dispute resolution processes rather than simply choosing to engage in formal court proceedings.
Through the Court system the parties can engage a private mediator or attend Family Dispute Resolution conferences. Where the parties are motivated to resolve disputes informally then this alternative dispute resolution process can prove very efficient and cost effective.
