Family Counseling

Family Forms

Court-ordered family counseling is an ambitious act taken by a local court system to remedy a family's problems with abuse, divorce, or seemingly any other conflict that could spark psychological or emotional hardships.

Court-ordered or mandated family counseling is offered to struggling families to help them become active and beneficial members of society through therapeutic means.

As a result of the local administration--meaning every state possesses a different procedure and interpretation of family counseling--the fees associated with the help will fluctuate based on location, the resources needed to deliver aid, and the particular circumstances which precipitate family counseling.

In most cases, the court system will pay for a large percentage of the family counseling. That being said, the majority of court-mandated family counseling cases will require the head of household to pay for the aid. The average cost of court-ordered family counseling sessions are relatively inexpensive and since they are mandated by state law, the help gathered from such aid supersedes whatever costs are attached.
