Child custody mediation


#1

Dear Dale:

Greetings. I did not even know that the custody mediation is taped. I have never heard any of the tapes. Did you see some tape? No judges should hear any such tapes and I would wager that if there are tapes, you will not be able to have a copy. Best of luck.

Thank you for your answer.

If both parents agree on the issues at the child custody mediation and both sign the agreement, does the judge have to sign to make it legal?

Thanks!

Dear Dale:

Greetings. When both parents sign the parenting agreement, the mediation office takes care of any other signatures that need to be made. Therefore, if a judge needs to sign, the mediation office will obtain that signature. I hope that helps. Best of luck.

Thank you for your respond to my questions.

Yes, in this county they do tape the child custody mediation. I am glad, because I was threaten by the other parent in the last mediation.

My question; If TEMPORARY child support is filed in the courts, does the other parent have to pay back time support or is it held until the trial date for the child support comes around?

Thank you.

Dear Dale:

Greetings. Child support can be awarded by the judge from the date of filing the action for the same. Hope that helps.

Hi:

My question is in reference to child custody mediation. I would like to know who hears the tapes that are recorded during the mediation? Does the judge and attorneys get to heard these? Can the persons at the mediation get copies?

Thank you for your information.
