Family Mediation Program


Sign stating Mediation The Baker County Family Mediation Program provides mediation to parents who have a current legal action in Baker County concerning final custody and/or parenting time (visitation).  Mediation is commenced when a Response is filed by an objecting parent or by order of the Court.  In mediation, parents have an opportunity to discuss the needs of their child(ren) and evaluate options for a satisfactory parental agreement.  The Court will not issue a final decree for any contested custody and/or parenting time issue unless it has proceeded through mediation.  If an agreement is not reached, the case will be resolved through a court Trial or Hearing.  The Judge will then make the decision for the parties after a Trial or Hearing.
