Supporting families through relationship breakdowns, separation and co-parenting.

The Toowoomba Relationship Centre assists families throughout the Darling Downs and South West Queensland in navigating some of life’s most challenging experiences.

We are committed to assisting families through separation and we are supportive of all separated parents & carers in their ongoing co-parenting journey. We understand that separation & co-parenting can be difficult at times for both adults & children, however we also know that if it’s managed well, all family members can go on to experience full & meaningful relationships with each other and with other people of significance to the family unit.

The key to successfully managing separation will generally involve effective, appropriate communication and ensuring children are protected from parental conflict. Our team respects cultural differences & beliefs and works supportively with all relationships & family arrangements.

How the Toowoomba FRC can assist you

  • We offer information, referrals, conflict & communication programs as well as Family Dispute Resolution (FDR) services.
  • FDR is a form of mediation established by the Family Law Act 1975, which is specifically designed to give separated parents/carers the opportunity to discuss & agree on how they will meet their children’s ongoing needs.
  • FDR may involve separated parents re-defining their relationship & finding new & respectful ways of communicating with each other so that their children have a meaningful relationship with both parents and enjoy a childhood protected from parental conflict.

Our Process

It's far more than just scheduling a time for parents/parties to sit in a room with a mediator.

Effective preparation for Mediation or Family Dispute Resolution ensures that clients have the best opportunity to feel heard by each other & reach agreements that are workable for all family members.

Prior to scheduling the Joint Family Dispute Resolution Session, all clients are given the opportunity to participate in assessments, education, referrals & coaching so they can feel prepared & ready to discuss their concerns in a meaningful way at mediation.
