Mediation Services

Milwaukee County offers mediation through Family Court Mediation Services in the Office of the Family Court Commissioner for custody and placement issues in family court cases filed in Milwaukee County. Mediation allows parents to meet with a neutral third party, or mediator, to work on solutions to the issues that bring them to family court.  Mediation is reasonably priced, confidential and usually scheduled more quickly than a court date.  In many instances, parents can work with a mediator to find a solution acceptable to both of them and reduce or eliminate the need for court appearances.
The fee for mediation through Family Court Mediation Services is $100 per person.
Mediation is started by court order.  Such an order can be requested by completing the mediation request form.  (click here to see the form)
