Free Mediation (Co-parenting)

Free meditation sessions and co-parenting classes are being offered to parents who need to work on sharing time with their children.  The goal of this program is to give children the benefit of having both parents involved in their lives.

 

 

Mediation services give parents the opportunity to work with an impartial neutral and the other parent to develop plans for spending time with the child(ren).   Even tricky topics such as how time will be divided over the holidays can be tackled.

Co-parenting classes give parents information and tools to effectively communicate with each other and share parenting responsibilities. 

 

 

To get access to the mediation program, both parents need to be willing to mediate a parenting plan.   Also, current contact information for both parents needs to be available.   Parents who meet these criteria should call Resolution Virginia's main telephone number 888-VA PEACE to connect to the closest center offering the services.  Or centers can be reached directly at the numbers below:
