Probate & Family Court
Our mediators are present every Thursday in Suffolk Probate & Family Court to provide mediation for parenting time issues during Department of Revenue Block Days.
What is Mediation?
Mediation is a process which creates the opportunity for people to discuss, with assistance of a trained neutral party, issues including parenting plans on their designated block day.
In mediation, parents may discuss parenting (visitation) schedules, transportation and other non-financial matters that affect their children.
If you reach an agreement, you may not need to return to court to deal with child-related issues.
Children generally fare better when they have ongoing involvement from both parents. Establishing a parenting schedule is an area where parents often disagree.
This program has been created to help parents successfully create an appropriate parenting plan.
HOW DO I GET STARTED?
You can speak with your DOR attorney at the Block Day about the option for mediation. Contact us with any questions.
