Family Dispute Resolution

Support for parents

A Place for grandparents

Children and Voices

Help for you



Mediation is less expensive, less time-consuming and less damaging than litigation. It leaves the control of the outcome with you and allows you to fashion your own solutions.

Child centred mediation focuses on the rights of children.  ISDR provides opportunities for the voice of children to be heard during the mediation process in every case.

Mediation enables the possibility for relationships to be repaired.


 We work with families  affected by separation and divorce to resolve  parenting and  property issues.  We also work with families where  discussions  about the care of aging parents need to occur. 

 ISDR values 

  • SAFETY of everyone in a a family, 

  • PARTICIPATION across the family system including children, 

  • SELF DETERMINATION  in decisions about the future, and informed CHOICE.


 All our mediators are registered Family Dispute Resolution  

 Practitioners and are able to issue Section 60I certificates where  appropriate under the Family Law Act.



The Institute of Dispute Resolution was founded in 2012.  Previously Jon Graham Consulting, the organisation has been at the leading edge of dispute resolution in Australia since 1999.

The ISDR team of mediators are skilled in both workplace and family conflict. 


The team is led by Jon Graham, a mediator since 1994, a clinical supervisor in mediation and family dispute resolution, and a trainer in mediation and family dispute resolution.  Jon combines a background in law and social science, to provide clinical expertise in the resolution of high conflict and complex cases.

We draw upon a pool of experienced practitioners who come from a range of professional disciplines.
