Families in Transition Mediation Services

The Children’s Law Center’s Families in Transition program is a voluntary program that provides the opportunity for parents to resolve conflicts outside of court regarding a family court case involving custody, visitation, and co-parenting disputes. The program is made possible through the generous donation of time by our volunteer mediators. The volunteer mediators are either attorneys or mental health professionals that have all completed a 40-hour mediation training program.

Attorneys utilize their mediation skills to assist parents in reaching an agreement within the legal context of family court. Mental Health Professionals utilize their mediation skills to help parents understand child’s developmental needs, the affect of their conflict on children, and to learn effective co-parenting techniques. This unique team approach helps parents create effective parenting agreements which hold up in court and provide stable homes for their children.

  • The program is currently in need of mental health professionals who have completed a 40-hour certified mediation training.
