In this article we have a conversation about some practical and theoretical issues for women arising from the introduction in Australia of compulsory family dispute resolution in parenting disputes from July 2007. We consider the positive aspects of mandating family dispute resolution for women parties, along with some of the potential disadvantages and dangers that women might face, particularly when family violence has been perpetrated in the relationship. In considering family dispute resolution, our focus is on the process of mediation. The central aim of the article is to explore connections and differences in theoretical and practical perspectives on issues for women parties in family dispute resolution.
