Nebraska Mediators & the Parenting Act

All mediators mediating under the Parenting Act are governed by the Act and related statutes, as well as guided by the Nebraska Standards and Ethics for Family Mediators. In addition, mediators who wish to be eligible for appointment by Nebraska's trial court judges to mediate Parenting Act cases must be approved by the Office of Dispute Resolution as a "Parenting Act mediator". The Policy for Approval of Parenting Act Mediators describes the approval process, mediator training and educational requirements, and mediator status and grievance process.
