Costs and funding
Efficient and cost-effective support.
At Family Works, we understand the importance of keeping our services cost-effective and minimising financial stress for families.
Family Dispute Resolution, including the preparation for mediation coaching, FDR mediation and specialist Voice of Child service, is government funded by the Ministry of Justice. Depending on your income and the number of dependent children you have, the service will either be fully or partially funded.
Even if you’re not eligible for the fully funded service, the cost is subsidised and will never cost more than $450 per person – much less than the cost of filing an application at the Family Court.
