This research project documented the successful use of community legal centre lawyers at Sunshine Family Relationship Centre when couples are undergoing family dispute resolution. The project highlighted the effectiveness of this model for future practitioners.

The review highlights the importance of the skills and abilities of the professionals involved in lawyer-assisted family dispute resolution. The subsequent report suggests a number of areas for improvement, including the provision of a summary of issues from centre practitioners for solicitors to use in preparation for the sessions.
