The Mediation and Facilitation Program assists parties in finding amicable resolutions to challenging problems. Our experienced team provides mediations for Child in Need of Services (CHINS) cases, actions to Terminate the Parent-Child Relationship (TPCR), and Contested Adoptions. Additionally, we offer permanency facilitations to address barriers that can keep children in care indefinitely.
Mediations and facilitations invite open conversation and creative exploration of possible solutions to real problems facing children and families. Resolutions reached through collaboration are individually tailored to meet the specific needs of individual families and children, have higher rates of compliance, and help avoid delays inherent in protracted litigation. Mediations and facilitations have resulted in timely reunification, informal adjustments, CHINS adjudications, changes of custody, guardianships, third party custody arrangements, and adoptions often with post adoption contact agreements.
