Voluntary (Pre-Filing) Custody and Parenting Time Mediation

Parents meet with a professional, court-approved, domestic relations mediator to develop a mutually agreeable custody arrangement and a parenting time schedule. The mediator guides discussions without taking sides or making decisions. Mediation is voluntary, confidential, and impartial. 


Mediation helps parents plan for their children's futures in a supportive setting; increases trust and improves communication between parents; and helps parents to develop new skills to handle future disagreements.


One three-hour mediation session is offered at no charge; however, both parents must first attend the Focus on Children class before mediation will be scheduled. Additional mediation sessions are $150 per 90-minute session.
