How Are Mediations Different In An Orange County Child Custody Case Vs. A Riverside/Inland Empire Child Custody Case?

In Orange County, mediations are merely efforts for the parties to meet face-to-face without their attorneys to attempt to resolve such issues. Mediators in Orange County do not make recommendations to the Court of parenting plans.

However, in Riverside County and other Inland Empire Family Courts, the court mediator can make recommendations regarding child custody and visitation that the Court judge will very likely give substantial consideration to in making court orders.

Mediators in all California Custody cases are allowed under law to make recommendations to the Court where there are allegations of domestic violence, drug and/or alcohol abuse, and other concerns of the mediator affecting the welfare and best interests of the children. Such recommendations can include an emergency child custody evaluation, a domestic violence investigation, a full psychological child custody evaluation, or the appointment of a “minor’s counsel,” who is a private attorney appointed to represent and protect the best interests of the minor children.
