Family Relationship Centres

Our Family Relationship Centres (FRCs) provide support though relationship changes or breakdown. Services include assistance with parenting arrangements, resolution of financial and property matters, information, referrals and mediation.

Who is it for?

Family Relationship Centres are available to support people going through the process of separation or divorce, or who have separated or divorced.

If you are interested in our mediation services, also known as Family Dispute Resolution, please watch our videos below. The videos contain information about mediation, the legal context, how the voice of children is considered, property and financial arrangements, ensuring families are safe in mediation and moving forward after separation.

How can the Family Relationship Centre help me?

If you are experiencing separation with children involved, our highly-trained staff will ensure both parties focus on the children’s needs and help you decide what to do next. Where safe, we can also provide joint sessions with the other parent or family members to help you agree on parenting and financial arrangements.

Our FRCs are a safe, non-judgemental and confidential environment.

Making an Appointment

Sessions are usually one hour long. We understand that everyone’s situation is different and your counsellor will be able to work with you and plan your session according to your requirements.

  • No referral is required
  • Day, evening and Saturday appointments are available at most locations
  • If you are separating, you can make an appointment for a private interview

Fees

Fees are determined based on your income at a level affordable to you. No one is turned away because of an inability to pay.

Fees waivers are available for individuals with a Centrelink Concession card or Health Care card, for First Nations clients and in some other circumstances (e.g. for clients who have been granted Legal Aid for the parenting issue being discussed at the Centre).
