Tim Clarke > Collaborative Solutions provides mediation to support parents and others responsible for the care of children reach agreement on arrangements that work best for the children and those around them. We provide FDR Mediation on a Private and Partially Funded basis.

Private - Clients are always welcome to approach us privately for mediation of care and guardianship issues. Our team all have approval to provide family mediation to the standards set by the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) and can work with you to develop a written agreement or, if mediation or agreement is not possible, an exemption certificate so that you can proceed through Court.

Partially Funded - Collaborative Solutions has been approved by the MOJ to provide partially funded FDR. Parties who do not qualify for full funding (because their income exceeds the criteria as described below) can undertake FDR mediation at a fixed fee of $897 (shared between the parties) for the standard mediation service. If you do not qualify for full funding you can approach us directly and we will assign you a mediator within a matter of 2 working days.

Contact us to find out more about the service and fee structure that will work best for you.

Our team below are all accredited to provide FDR mediation and carefully selected to ensure you get the best quality service possible. When you sign up for FDR, our mediator will meet with you and the other parties individually to ensure that mediation is appropriate and you are fully prepared for the joint mediation meeting.
