Family Mediation

Our Family Mediation 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
  • Communication
  • Co-parenting
  • Decision making
  • Sharing costs 


At Relationships Australia Canberra & Region, we also offer a Child Informed Practice which brings your child’s perspective into the mediation process.

Through Child Informed Practice, a child consultant advocates 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 family mediation 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.
