Family Relationship Centre Hobart

The Hobart Family Relationship Centre provides information and referrals for families at any stage of their relationships, as well as individual interviews, information sessions and joint sessions for separating or separated families.

Staff at the Centre provide advice on parenting after separation and help parents focus on the needs of their children. They provide Family Dispute Resolution to help parents resolve conflict and develop workable arrangements (including parenting plans) for their children.

There is metered parking available at the front of the building. If a client has disabilities, such as wheelchair or mobility issues, they can be seen in a room on the ground floor.

Staff at the Centre come from a range of backgrounds including Social Sciences, Psychology, Education, and Law.

Family Dispute Resolution is a three step process at the Hobart Family Relationship Centre. At each stage of the process, an assessment will be made as to the suitability of Family Dispute Resolution. The focus is always on what is in the best interest of the children.

The first step is an individual session with a family dispute resolution practitioner who will gather information. The next stage is education regarding children's needs and strategies to help with the negotiation process. The final step is a  Family Dispute Resolution session.

This joint session can take different forms to accommodate varying needs. These may include both parties in the same room, a shuttle arrangement where each party is in a separate room and the family dispute resolution practitioner moves between rooms, or telephone mediation options.

Family dispute resolution practitioners manage the process from beginning to end and use their professional capacity to facilitate the most constructive environment.
