Family Dispute Resolution
As Family Mediation specialists, we are well aware of the financial pressures that result from separation and divorce. Our aim is to keep you out of a costly contested Court process and our services result in a fraction of the cost of litigation, which can amount to tens of thousands of dollars. Unlike many practices, we will not charge you for sundry items such as emails, faxes and photo-copying, which often results in costs spiralling out of control. To assist clients in planning, we provide a fixed schedule for Family Dispute Resolution services, so from the outset you are aware of the likely cost.
Referrals from FDR process:
Resolve Sydney understands that clients may require a range of services to support them with the effects of separation and divorce, ranging from legal advice, financial planning and psychological support. We collaborate and have established relationships with practitioners in other fields to facilitate referrals, whilst ensuring clients retain complete control over their decision-making.
Medicare & Private health insurance rebates:
The Australian Government allows up to 10 individual treatment sessions in a calendar year per person under the Better Access program and Medicare rebate.
The Better Access initiative Medicare rebate provides assistance for people who are having difficulty controlling their emotions, thinking and behaviour, including those with anxiety and depression, addictive behaviours, childhood behaviour problems, social skills and decision-making.
The Better Access initiative covers people with problems arising from: Alcohol use disorder, Adjustment disorder, Attention deficit disorder, Bereavement disorder Bipolar disorder, Conduct disorder, Depression, Drug use, Obsessive compulsive disorder, Posttraumatic stress disorder and Sleep problems.
All psychologists are registered with the national registration board, the Psychology Board of Australia, in the same way medical practitioners must be registered. This means that they are competent and follow a strict Code of Conduct.
Private health insurers may also rebate part of the cost of psychological consultations. Contact your health insurance provider for further information.
In accordance with ethical practice guidelines, FDR Practitioners will not offer other services such as parenting and relationship consultation, child & adolescent therapy or collaborative consultation to any family members that have been involved in a Family Dispute Resolution mediation within this practice.
