Family Court

Our mission is to promote the stability and best interests of marriage and the family by providing a forum for dispute resolution as well as educational opportunities for parties involved in family court actions.

As a judicial office, family court provides a forum for the Commissioner to hear and decide cases in family and other civil litigation.

As the Director of Family Court Counseling, the Commissioner coordinates mediation and educational services for parties involved in family court litigation.  Our goal is to promote harmony and minimize stress for both children and parents in non-intact families, by promoting cooperative communication and co-decision making between parents.
