Douglas County Domestic Mediation Services is seeking to add two mediators to its program. As part of the program, mediators agree to accept cases on a rotating basis; mediation fees are reduced and based upon a sliding scale where each party pays according to their individual income. The program contemplates a total of four hours of mediation for each case. Local court rule requires parties to a contested case involving child custody, parenting schedules and/or parenting rights to attempt mediation prior to setting the case for final hearing. The issue most often mediated in the program is parenting time.
Sliding scale information can be found in the program brochure at https://www.douglascountyks.org/sites/default/files/media/depts/court-tr...
