Court ordered families are assigned payment responsibility by the court. Other referring agencies may indicate in writing who will be responsible for payment. If the referring agency does not indicate who will be responsible for payment, the KIDZ SAFE will assign financial responsibility. Service will not be provided until a fee agreement is signed by both parties and the initial payment is received.
All cancellations must be made at least 48 hours in advance of a scheduled appointment or visitation. Parents are not charged if proper notice is given this is expected during business or supervision hours. The party who cancels outside of the time frame will be charged the full visitation fee, regardless of which parent is responsible for visitation costs.
A party who fails to arrive for an appointment and has not notified the Center will be charged the entire amount of the service. Rescheduling of visits will depend on the Center’s availability and cannot be guaranteed. Two cancellations without notification will result in termination of services and notice will be sent to the referring agency. Services may be suspended or terminated due to nonpayment.
A retainer fee of $1000 is required in advance to the party issuing the subpoena, with an additional $200 per hour fee for preparation, with a minimum of two hours preparation for court. It is understood that no further information is generally available or useful outside of the Observation Monitoring Sheets which are prepared and submitted to the Court, creating no need for court testimony since KID SAFE make neither recommendations nor interpretations of the visit.
All fees will be paid by cash, cashier’s check, money order or Visa/MasterCard. Payments are paid in advance of the next visit. Payment for the next visit is made at the time of the current visitation/exchange. Any charge cards being used will need to be in your possession and a separate form filled out for ongoing use for the card for regular billing.
Payment for Visits
All fees are required one week in advance of the visit. We believe this is thoughtful to the children and the other parent in scheduling. It also provides both parents the advance planning necessary to save the money and also to plan the visit. I am showing my commitment to visiting with my children by consistently paying for my visits in advance to regularly and routinely have contact with them. For Intake appointments you will need to include your payment with your paperwork or pay through PayPal, Charge Card or cash before the appointment is scheduled.
Payment for Other Services and Requests
Each parent will be 100% responsible for their individual communications, whether verbal, written, or electronic with KIDZ SAFE staff that each participant initiates or requires. Each parent will be 100% responsible for the writing of any reports or the reading of any reports or summaries that each participant initiates or requests of KIDZ SAFE staff. Payment can be made online through our website
