Conflict of Interest

Our obligation to you

This policy applies if, in relation to a person who is a party to a dispute that is the subject of family dispute resolution, or any other party to that dispute, a family dispute resolution practitioner:

a. has acted previously in a professional capacity (otherwise than as a family dispute resolution practitioner, a family counsellor or an arbitrator); or

b. has had a previous commercial dealing; or

c. is a personal acquaintance.

A family dispute resolution practitioner may provide family dispute resolution services to a party mentioned in the paragraph above only if:

a. each party to the family dispute resolution agrees; and

b. the previous professional dealing (if any) does not relate to any issue in the dispute; and

c. the previous commercial dealing or acquaintance (if any) is not of a kind that could reasonably be expected to influence the family dispute resolution practitioner in the provision of his or her family dispute resolution services.

The above policy is consistent with regulatory provisions governing the FDR process and its practitioners.
