Domestic violence information
Safety is our First Concern
The FCS Building should be a safe and secure place to discuss the issues about your children. There is a zero tolerance with regard to any expression or threat of violence, disorderly conduct, verbal abuse or observable intimidation.
If there has been domestic violence between you and the other parent:
Notify Us - On the back of the parent information sheet, please answer the questions truthfully and completely. If a protective order is in effect, bring a copy with you to our office. When calling for any appointment, notify our staff that you need separate sessions or separate waiting areas.
Support Person - The person protected by a restraining order has the right to request that a support person be present during mediation.
Separate Meetings - The mediator will meet with parties separately and at separate times.
Confidential Addresses - At the request of the client alleging domestic violence, the residential addresses and phone numbers will be kept confidential.
Your Parenting Plan - The custody/visitation order shall specify the time, day, place and manner of transfer of the child.
Parent Referrals - Parents may be informed about professional counseling assistance where appropriate including, parenting classes, Kid’s Turn, anger management or individual therapy.
