- Custody/Parenting Time Mediation:
Members of our staff have conducted Custody/Parenting Time mediation to assist parents in devising a mutually acceptable parenting plan. Our understanding of the unique needs of children is useful to parents in the mediation process.
- Parent/Child Reunification Therapy:
Our staff is trained to conduct therapy aimed at reuniting children with parents who have been absent from their lives. Our understanding of family dynamics and our awareness of the unique needs of children of divorce guide us in the reunification process.
- Therapeutic Supervised Visitation:
In cases where supervised visitation has been ordered by the Court, members of our staff are available to supervise the visits and, at the same time, offer therapeutic assistance. Our psychologists can guide the parent and the children while using therapeutic techniques designed to reduce tension.
- Attorney Consultations:
Members of our staff are available as consultants to attorneys involved in matters of family law. There are two consulting roles we can fulfill:
- Testimonial Expert: After reviewing the previous expert's case file and report, the Testimonial Expert writes a report identifying the strengths and weaknesses of the previous expert's procedures and conclusions. The Testimonial Expert does not meet with the parties but can be called upon to testify at a trial, should one be held.
- Non-Testimonial Consultant: This consultant is retained by the attorney, not the litigant. As a result, the consultant's contact with the attorney is confidential and all their notes and communications are attorney work product and not open to discovery. The Non-Testimonial Consultant can consult with the retaining attorney on all aspects of the case, including reviewing the previous expert's report, critiquing that expert's conclusions, and assisting the attorney with depositions and cross examinations. The Non-Testimonial Consultant does not testify in Court.
