Cost of the Co-Parenting Counseling
The first step is to complete an initial intake. In most cases, the cost of the intake will be covered by insurance. For individuals who do not have insurance, the cost for an initial intake is $100.00.
After you have completed week three of the class, you and your co-parent can start co-parenting counseling. The cost of coparenting counseling is $80.00 per 50-minute session. In many cases the cost of the co-parenting counseling can be billed to insurance as family therapy, however, you must meet the medical necessity requirement. As a courtesy, we will bill your insurance. If insurance denies your claim, you will be responsible for reimbursing the cost of the sessions.
Letter of Completion
Once you have completed the class and counseling sessions, you may request a letter of completion which you or your attorney can file with the courts. There is no additional cost for the letter of completion. However, if your case requires a status update, that is prepared at the rate if $150.00 per hour.
We look forward to working with you and your family!
