Welcome to Catalyst Family Dispute Resolution

We are a boutique Central Coast-based Family Dispute Resolution and Mediation Practice dedicated to assisting people going through separation to negotiate how their children will be cared for in the future and/or how their property will be divided after a separation.

As an Accredited Specialist Family Lawyer, and Independent Children’s Lawyer, our principal Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner, Paul Fawcett, has seen first-hand the destructive nature of bitter disputes in the Family Law Courts. Paul is dedicated to helping separating couples reach agreements that work with them and their family in a comfortable, safe, neutral, and child-focused setting.

We believe distance should be no impediment to quality, solution-focused dispute resolution. Using the latest technology, we offer Family Dispute Resolution and Mediation Australia-wide using a convenient and secure online platform.

What is Mediation?

Mediation is a process which assists people to reach agreements about their disputes without the stress and expense of ongoing legal battles.


For Family Lawyers

As you know, Family Dispute Resolution (‘FDR’) is becoming an increasingly significant aspect of the Family Law work we do. It is already compulsory in most parenting matters prior to the initiating of parenting proceedings.
