Online Mediation Orientation

The Child Custody Counseling live orientation class is no longer available. The court has an online orientation that can be accessed using the link, Child Custody Counseling Orientation. By clicking on this link you will be taken to the orientation program. You must complete the orientation class online prior to your court date and take the certificate of completion, or email, to your court date to show that you have completed the class. The orientation includes important information about logistics and resources, helping children through their parents’ separation, and how to develop a parenting plan. If you don’t have a home computer the county library and our self-help center have computers that you can access. If you use the library you will have to take your own headphones.
