Conflict Resolution Conference: Part 4

If the parents reach an agreement during the CRC, the terms of that agreement are reported to the Court, the parents, and the attorneys of record. The agreement becomes legally binding upon order of the Court.

Even when an agreement is not reached during the sessions, the CRC process is still helpful. Parents often leave with a greater understanding of different parenting plans and how they might meet the needs of their children.

Parenting plans may need to change several times over the years for a variety of reasons. If parents need help in resolving issues about their children after the CRC process is completed, they may contact the Court Support Services Division – Family Services for direction.

What to Expect

 

To take part in the Conflict Resolution Conference (CRC), parents must be referred by the Family Court. At the start of the process the parents may be asked to sign Authorization for Release of Information forms. The FRC assigned to the case can then get information from professional sources, such as schools, therapists or doctors, which may help in resolving the issue.

 

The CRC is a confidential process. Exceptions to this will be discussed in the first session. There may be up to two, 3-hour sessions in all, and the attorneys of record may be brought into the process at any time.

Conflict Resolution Conference: Part 1

Introduction

The Conflict Resolution Conference (CRC) is a confidential service that helps parents solve parenting issues in a cooperative and positive manner. In this process, the parents are able to keep their decision-making roles in solving family disputes with the assistance of a Family Relations Counselor (FRC). Attorneys of record may be included in the meetings and relevant information from community resources/agencies involved with the family will be made part of the process.

It is important that parents work together to make joint decisions for their children’s care and development. The CRC supports this process by guiding and educating the parents. This usually results in a parenting plan that is successful and less stressful for all involved.

The main issues dealt with in this process are child custody and/or access arrangements. However, if the parents and the attorneys agree, some financial and property issues may also be addressed.
