The workshop is designed to inform families about their children's needs as they move thought the difficult transitions of separation and divorce and to introduce parents to the mediation process as an alternative to traditional litigation for resolving parenting matters. Program speakers include a Family Mediator, Family Court Judge and various other Family Court staff.
