BACKGROUND: 

The budget of $76,000.00 will continue to provide for two part-time Family Facilitation/Mediation Specialist which will be extended through continued grant funding.  Their entire caseload (18-20 families per week) will consist of custodial and non-custodial parents court ordered to provide child support. In addition to the formulation of parenting agreements, they will be tasked with implementing performance measures and collecting follow-up data developed cooperatively by the Eighth Judicial District Court, Clark County District Attorney Family Support Division and the State Support Enforcement Division.

This budget will enable the County to be reimbursed for mediation training and improve child support payments by non-custodial parents through mediation of access and visitation issues and development of mutually acceptable parenting agreements.
