There are no trial periods. Should your financial circumstances change and you are unable to retain your Au Pair whom we have placed with you, two weeks written notice to Family Match is required to allow time for relocation of the Au Pair.

If a replacement Au Pair is required during the first six weeks, we will source you a new Au Pair to complete the remaining period of your original contract at no extra cost.

This guarantee is void if the host family has not adhered to the payment terms agreed to by the Host Family with Family Match Australia, or if the reason for the Au Pair's departure is a failure of the Host Family to provide her with her own private room and/or that her living conditions within the home are not of good hygienic standard, or facilities are not as represented prior to engagement of the Au Pair.
