    This session will incorporate real-world scenarios to demonstrate how, with assistance of counsel, parties may resolve family disputes that arise in state as well as federal courts. Two experienced mediators and practitioners, Valerie Arnold from Arnold, Rodman & Kretchmer, P.A., and Cynthia R. Mabry-King, a full-time circuit mediator, will share their perspectives on court-annexed and private mediations. Starting with exploring why parties should consider mediation, participants will receive practical advice and learn mediation skills that will enhance their preparation for mediation and their ability to resolve family conflicts including complex and high-conflict family disputes.

    At the end of this session, you should be able to:

    • Know how to use court-annexed and private mediation more effectively as an alternative to litigation for resolving international as well as interstate family disputes
    • Have a workable plan for preparing themselves and disputants to ensure a greater likelihood of success with mediation
    • Amass useful tools for addressing certain situations which commonly arise during mediation of family disputes such as international and interstate state enforcement issues, logistics for mediation of international and cross-country disputes, past and present domestic violence concerns, and emotional dynamics for more productive sessions
