Free preparatory counselling is available if it has been recommended by your Family Dispute Resolution (FDR) provider, and if you are eligible for funding. (To find out whether you are eligible for funding, view the eligibility table on the Ministry of Justice website or call the Family Justice line 0800 2 AGREE (0800 224 733).)

If your case is with the Family Court, counselling may be available where directed by the judge.

Otherwise if you need relationship counselling your local CAB can help you find a relationship counsellor (but it probably won’t be free).
The Family Court Pamphlet will be added here soon.
