Our Family Mediation and Family Dispute Resolution services help separated couples reach agreements regarding their children. An independent, impartial mediator will assist parties to reduce conflict, negotiate outcomes, and develop techniques to deal with future disputes.
Mediation is available for parents, carers and other family members. Mediation helps people talk with respect and focus on the best outcome for their children.
Common topics include:
- Living arrangements for children
- Parenting arrangements
- Child support or other costs
At Relationships Australia Canberra & Region, we use a Child Informed Practice to bring a child’s perspective into the mediation process. A child consultant will advocate for the needs of the child. Hearing how their child is experiencing the changes in their family life can help parents to make arrangements that are most beneficial to the child.
Fees for counselling services are charged based on a sliding scale according to your income, ensuring accessibility for all people. Our team will discuss fees with you at the time of booking, including any concessions that may apply.
