Qualified mediators help parents negotiate about custody and parenting time for children.  In a confidential setting, mediators help parents resolve conflicts and reach agreements about custody and parenting time and draft written agreements that can be attached to Court paperwork or presented in Court.  

Mediation is free and available to both voluntary and court-ordered parents with child custody or divorce cases in Multnomah County.  Parents with concerns about their safety in mediation may talk with a mediator about how to use mediation safely.
