Recent initiatives by the Federal Department of Family and Community Services and the Attorney-General’s Department seek to provide new services in primary dispute resolution (PDR) in regional centres of WA. The target group for PDR services is said to be the separating and divorcing population in rural and regional Australia. Selected centres in WA include Albany and Geraldton, which are at either end of the south-western farming zone known as the wheatbelt.
