Unethical Mediator; What Can I Do?

“I recently participated in the mediation process and felt that the mediator acted unethically during the process; what can I do?”

Answer: The Office of Dispute Resolution has implemented a process to address these issues. These Options regarding complaints against Parenting Act mediators can help a party to the mediation process discuss or report any lack of adherence to the Ethics which Parenting Act mediators are held. 

It is important as a party to a Parenting Act mediation to determine if the mediator is on the approved list as the Office of Dispute Resolution is unable to discipline those mediators who have not been approved. A good reminder for any party to a Parenting Act mediation session would be to ask your mediator, "Are you Approved through the Office of Dispute Resolution to mediate Parenting Act cases."
