Child Protection Mediation, Part III

How is a Case Referred?

  •  Cases may be referred at any time in the case after it is filed
  • A case may be referred in court, at a case management conference, or at a case status conference

  

The Process Includes:

  •  Completing the intake process with a Court Services Officer
  • Obtaining the Judge’s approval

  

The Intake/Referral Process Includes:

  •  Completing the intake/referral form
  • Selecting a mediation team
  • Signing an agreement to participate in mediation and a confidentiality agreement
  • Scheduling a date to return to court

  

What Happens After the Mediation Session?

 If the parties reach an agreement, the parties put the agreement in writing. The agreement is then reviewed in court by the judge and, if approved, made part of the decision of the case. If the parties do not reach an agreement, they go back to court for the court to handle.

Registering for Parenting Education Programs

How do I register?

 Complete Section III of the Parenting Education  Program – Order, Certificate and   Results form  (JD-FM-149). The forms are available at all Judicial District Clerks’ Offices, Court Service Centers and on the Judicial Branch website. Your lawyer or the program provider may also have the form.

 You may attend any approved parenting education program in the state.

 Contact the program provider most convenient for you to get information about  registration, fee arrangements, class dates, times and locations.

 Contact the program provider to register for a class. The court will not register you.

 Be sure to tell the program provider if you must complete the class by a certain date.

 Bring the Parenting Education Program Order, Certificate and Results form (JD-FM-149) with you to the first class.

 Upon satisfactory completion of the program, the program provider will send you and the court a certificate of completion.
