  • Application for Mediation - [ PDF ]
  • The Domestic Relations Office (DRO) mediates for separating families that anticipate Divorce or desire to file a Suit Establishing the Parent Child Relationship (SAPCR) with the court. Mediation with the DRO provides a lower cost alternative to litigation by offering parents the ability to decide together what is best for them and their child(ren). Mediation is a process in which a neutral party (DRO) assists parents in resolving issues of custody, parenting time, child and medical support, and limited property including assets and debts. An executed mediation agreement is binding and should be presented to the court by the parties for a final order to be issued.
