Family mediation task force established

A bill was heard this week that would create a family law mediation task force to advise and inform the Legislature on the impact of conflict on children during the marital dissolution process and includes recommendations on how to implement conflict resolution procedures. The taskforce would consist of 13 members appointed by the four legislative caucus leaders and representatives from various health and human services stakeholder associations. The report must include recommendations for conflict resolution practices, model standards for programs of practice for family law mediation, and at least two mediation pilot projects. (SF 1829)
