We are very cognizant of the fact that money often becomes tighter during separation, so we try to make mediation as affordable as possible. At PFDR we take pride in our motto of “Quality, Professional, Affordable Mediation to help you settle without going to Court.”
We acknowledge that government assisted mediation may not be beneficial for everyone. Wait times can be quite lengthy and moderate income earners may not benefit financially where services are means tested. Long wait times can add to overall costs if your ex-partner is left free to accumulate further debt. In addition, speedy access to a Parenting Plan is essential to help protect your Children from the negative effects and undue stress of any ongoing Parental Conflict, which is damaging if allowed to continue long term.
PFDR has EFTPOS payment options available for your convenience.
