Before filing an application in the Court, you may seek counselling from the Court Counselling service. Ask your nearest Court Registry for information on the Court Counselling Service.
There are several organisations also offering counselling services in the community. Useful contacts can be found in the Information Sheet IS 7. Please pick up a copy from your nearest Court Registry or download Information Sheet 7.
The Court Counselling Service is staffed by trained counsellors with special expertise in working with families who are facing separation, divorce and problems associated with child residence, contact and other issues relating to the welfare of your children.
Your discussions with Court Counsellors are confidential. This means that the information you give to Court Counsellors will not be admissible in Court.
When can you see a court counsellor?
You can make an appointment to see a Court Counsellor. This is purely voluntary.
When your action has commenced, you can also see a Court Counsellor, if ordered by the Court.
Do you have to pay to see a court counsellor?
No. This service is free.
