Abstract

This study was designed to explore elements of the operation of the certificate-issuing process created by s. 60I of the Family Law Act 1975 (Cwlth). Specifically, it sought to explore: • the number and categories of certificates issued, and the characteristics of clients who do and do not receive them • the factors and circumstances influencing the decision of Family Dispute Resolution Practitioners to issue different categories of s. 60I certificates • clients’ understanding of the purpose of the certificate, and the various dispute resolution pathways (if any) used by families after receiving a s. 60I certificate.
