Revealing Confidential FRC Mediation Material

Ex has responded to my Response to her Initiating Application. I was of the understanding that conversation in Family Relationship Centre (FRC) mediation is confidential and is in-admissible in court. Is this correct? Ex has revealed information from the FRC mediation sessions in her Affidavit (Self-litigant). Any further advice most appreciated.

  Conversations at FRC Mediation conferences are INADMISSIBLE* and you can ask for them to be 'struck out'. If these have been used then it is quite possible that there is other inadmissible material in her Affidavit ie, hearsay, submissions, etc and her Affidavit should be checked by a professional.

*If a Court has ordered futher mediation it might be under the proviso that some materila can be reported - although this is normally limited to the attitude of the parties.
