MARION COUNTY COURT-CONNECTED MEDIATION RESOURCES

The most important thing to remember is that mediation is for the benefit of your child or children. Before mediation, please review the following:

Every parent involved in a divorce or custody issue in Marion County must take a parenting class before the Court will enter a final judgment on your case. It is helpful to take this class before attending your first mediation session. More information on the Children Cope with Divorce ("Cope") class:

Please think about the questions in the following document in preparation for mediation.
