The program is designed for mediators who have completed the minimum 24 hours Basic/Initial Mediation Training and interested in learning how to assist parties in their disputes at Surrogate’s Court using the mediation process. Most concerns presented in Surrogate’s Court cases are not merely legal disputes but involve ongoing relationships between the parties and family members. The training will provide the participants with the overview of the various types of Surrogate’s Court cases referred to mediation and learn the skills to support parties in the mediation process; by giving them the opportunity to voice their differences, gain clarity on the issues and make choices on how they will move forward with their conflict.
This 16-hour training is approved under Part 146 of the Rules of the Chief Administrative Judge. Final placement on any court roster is at the discretion of the local Administrative Judge and participation in a course that is either approved or pending approval does not guarantee placement on a local court roster.
