Webinar recording now available: Custody Mediation and Domestic Violence: What Advocates Should Know

September 11, 2018 ~ 10:00am PT / 1:00pm ET

Presenters: Janice Garceau, LCSW, and Melissa Mangiaracina, JD/Mediator

While mediation offers many parents an alternative to formal and often adversarial court processes, they may also present serious safety and parenting consequences for domestic violence survivors and their children. The Resource Center on Domestic Violence: Child Protection and Custody offers this webinar to help advocates orient survivors to common custody mediation processes, make them aware of risks that mediation may pose, and suggest tangible ways to help survivors prepare for the mediation.

If you are the victim of domestic violence and need legal help, these guides will help you find someone who can help you with your case. A lawyer who knows about domestic violence may be the best person to help. Parts of this guide will give you ideas about how to find one. However, you may not be able to find a lawyer to represent you in court. This guide also gives you ideas of other ways to get help with your case without a lawyer. This quick guide has links to websites that may help you and some national telephone numbers.

Please feel free to contact the NCJFCJ's Resource Center on Domestic Violence: Child Protection and Custody at 800-527-3223 or visit the website at for information and referrals.
