Mediation is an excellent alternative to litigation or arbitration. As an unbiased, neutral third-party, a mediator works with parties in conflict to facilitate open and respectful communication in a safe space. Restore Family Support Services empowers individuals to craft an agreement that is sustainable, "win-win" and keeps you out of court.
The initial consultation with all parties is the first step in the mediation process. Once parties agree to mediation, pre-mediation forms must be completed and returned. Mediations are scheduled for a half (4hrs) or full( 8hrs), unless other arrangements are made.
Service Fee- $100/hour
*Mediations are scheduled in half day (4hrs) or full day( 8hrs). Additional hours will be billed at the hourly rate.

A Guardian Ad Litem is a court- appointed child advocate, representing the best interest of the child in high conflict family court cases. The investigation, recommendations and testimony provided to the court are critical in assisting judges in decision that can affect conservatorship, possession, and access.
The parties will be required to provide a court order and additional documents at the request of the Guardian Ad Litem prior to the start of the case. It is important to understand that the GAL does not work for either parent or the attorneys, but is appointed to represent the best interest of the child and works for the court.
