Join the Interact Support Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner Panel
Interact Support is building a referral panel of accredited Family Dispute Resolution Practitioners.
The requirement to be on the panel is that you are an accredited Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner with a suitable location to provide face to face family dispute resolution services to clients in your local area.
You may provide parenting, property or both styles of FDR as well as help people with issues that result from co-parenting when there is a parenting plan or parenting orders in place.
Our goal at interact is to help people to resolve their separation related or parenting issues quickly in order to avoid child alienation and disputes escalating into family conflict or family violence.
What services would I be providing if I am accepted to the panel?
The major service that you would be providing under the panel arrangement is Family Dispute Resolution.
If you are a Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner but your main work is as a Family Lawyer please see our https://interact.support/legal-panel/
Some clients may come to our website and then directly contact you others may be referred to you after accessing Interact Support services such as an Interact Consultation or completing the New Ways for Families Course.
Where possible we will encourage clients to complete an Interact Support Client File and complete Family DOORS risk screening tool.
If the client gives permission you will be provided with a copy of either or both if completed to speed up the information collection process before mediation commences.
Some will already have had an Interact Consultation and may have decided that participating in Family Dispute Resolution is the best process to achieve their goal of a resolution of their family dispute. Others may not have had any information about FDR before they speak with you so make sure you check in with the client what they know about their options and what help they want from you.
What can I charge for my services?
The referral to FDRP’s for face to face mediation is a referral service. You will charge clients whatever your standard fee is.
If you work as a contractor to provide services for Interact Support you would be paid an agreed fee for services provided.
If you have clients who are unable to pay for your services feel free to refer them to us.
If you are an experienced FDR Practitioner and willing to provide supervision to a student we may be able to provide a subsidy for you to work with the clients.
