Let’s dive into what’s the fuss with the 60I certificate
What is a 60I certificate?
It can be hard to see eye to eye for parents or other family members about the amount and manner to spend time with the children. It is based on the 1975 Family Law Act that prior to going to court, the family members in disagreement go to mediation. If both parties are looking to change the current parenting order, a 60I certificate can help you on your way to getting there. They are also required to acquire a Certificate of Attendance, otherwise known as a section 60I certificate. By going through mediation and making a genuine attempt to resolve their issues without a court, they will be able to obtain the certificate. With the help of a mediator, it should be able to work out finding a family dispute resolution. If there are still conflicting sides between both parties, a 60I certificate will ensure they will be able to attend court for parenting orders.

A 60I certificate, as mentioned in the previous section, can be obtained through attending mediation.
