Program: Dispute Resolution and Parenting Coordination
Vital Sign: Health & Wellness
Total Grant: $30,500 ($4,164 from donor contributions)
BC Families in Transition's Dispute Resolution and Parenting Coordination project will promote parents' use of dispute resolution to resolve family conflict, in accordance with the processes outlined in the new Family Law Act. Through a combined mediation and voluntary parenting coordination model, integrated with existing services, this project will achieve the Act's purpose in reducing parents' use of the courts. BC Families in Transition will add family mediation services that complement those of the Family Justice Centre, individualized voluntary parenting coordination services, and communication workshops to low-income families.
