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.
