The clash or dispute because of any reason among the family members is known as a family dispute. Family dispute is a common feature of almost all the families across the world.

There could be a number of possible causes of a family dispute; however, significant of them are:

  • Communication gap or misunderstanding: If a message is not conveyed clearly, it may create questions, doubt, mistrust that may further lead to dispute. 
  • Anger or/and Revenge: If someone mistaken that need to be resolved with a family meeting; if something is going or having doubt in mind that should be cleared; and if you demand something, you should be clear. Do not keep dissension in mind because it creates the feeling of revenge.

What legislation is required to a Family dispute?

The concept of separate Family Courts has been introduced by the Family Courts Act 1984. The purpose behind the Act was to release the burden of courts (as many cases were getting piled up in the court), to promote conciliation and mediation services, and to ensure the speedy settlement of the family disputes. In India, the family dispute matters which are dealt in a Family Court are largely matrimonial dispute and child custody. 

However, because of filing of dozens of cases every day in one family court, it is also overburdened, resultantly, justice is being delayed. Therefore, I believe, mediation is one of the best solutions for a family dispute matter. The most significant point of mediation along with time and money saving is – your privacy is maintained all the time. 

What is the Family Dispute Resolution process?

Family Dispute Resolution process is a technique designed exclusively to deal with the family dispute through conciliation and mediation. Suppose, there is a dispute in your family (dispute could be with anyone, for example, dispute between father and son, between brothers, or husband-wife dispute, etc.) and it became so severe that members in dispute left talking and even thinking about to harm each other. 

Family relationship is a relationship of blood and it is made by the god/nature, which decency and dignity should always be maintained. In such a case, left talking, getting divided, or thinking to harm each other is not at all healthy not only for the members who are involved in dispute, but rather for the whole family.
