Abstract

This article analyses current family dispute resolution practice in mediation and conciliation. It argues that recent changes to the Family Law Act 1975 (Cth) (‘the Act’) have resulted in increasing similarity in the role of the third party facilitator in these processes. This is despite fundamental differences in well accepted definitions used to describe both mediation and conciliation.
