Approved Mediators List

Approved Mediators List

Approved Parenting Act Mediators are those approved by ODR, on behalf of the State Court Administrator, who have met statutory and policy requirements including mediator training, continuing education, and apprenticeship standards; who agree to adhere to the Nebraska Standards of Practice and Ethics for Family Mediators; who demonstrate and maintain an active status as a Parenting Act mediator; and who have passed a background check. Are you interested in becoming an approved Parenting Act mediator? Check out the Parenting Act Mediator Information page.

Each mediator included in The List of Approved Parenting Act Mediators has met the criteria listed above, based upon his or her application and as determined by ODR.
