MISSOURI DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROGRAM RECEIVES NATIONAL RECOGNITION
The family access dispute resolution program of the Seventh Judicial Circuit has been recognized by the Association of Family & Conciliation Courts as one of the 2005 Exemplary Family Court Programs. Clay County established the dispute resolution program in 1998 to provide a flexible and informal forum for families with court-ordered parenting plans to resolve issues about parenting time with their children. Family access motions filed with the court are referred to the Office of Dispute Resolution Services to arrange mediation and arbitration, as appropriate. The number of cases resulting in adversarial hearings has been reduced by 75 percent.
