Family Mediation and Counseling Services in Plainfield, Indiana
When two parents split, it is important to understand the best solution for the children. We have staff trained by the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts to help. Whether you need a parent coordinator or a guardian ad litem, we can assist you.
Supervised visitation includes an initial clinical risk assessment. We will determine the best course of action and provide progress reports to the court. These services are on-site with weekday and weekend availabilities.
Off-site services are available as deemed appropriate. We will judge the need based on the safety risk for the children.
All custody evaluations are completed by a master’s level professional. Each family member is evaluated individually with psychological testing available. Other collateral contacts are completed as necessary. The parent will remain a part of determining the solution.
Clinical home studies are completed in most custody evaluations. This evaluation is utilized by the staff to help determine a sound, effective parenting plan. We also offer safety home evaluations. Adoption home studies are available for in-state adoptions.
Our registered court mediator provides all mediation services. This mediation process promotes a cooperative resolution between parents. This helps them move beyond an adversarial relationship. We have been registered since 1977.
