Abstract

Abstract: The paper explores the background for med-arb in family law proceedings and notes the changes in the Commercial Arbitration Acts to provide for med-arb. It focuses particularly on questions concerning the suitability of med-arb in child matters as mooted by the former Commonwealth Attorney-General Robert McClelland MP; the advantages and disadvantages of med-arb; structure and integrity of the FDR process; the knowledge and consent of the parties; control versus self-determination; issues of confidentiality; the effect on the parties, and issues concerning mediator/FDRP training.
