Other Important Information
If there has been a history of domestic violence or if there is a restraining order in place, the parties are entitled to separate mediation sessions and customers are advised to inform the front counter staff of the restraining orders prior to the setting of the mediation appointments. This will allow court staff the ability to set separate appointments and maintain confidential addresses.
Reports to Child Protective Services
Family Law Mediators/Evaluators are "mandated reporters". This means they are legally obligated to report to Child Protective Services (CPS) any situation that may pose an imminent danger or risk to the child(ren). Parties will be informed when referrals are made to CPS for risk assessment.
