Family Law Update: Rules on Court-Annexed Family Mediation

The Supreme Court recently issued its rules on Court-Annexed Family Mediation which took effect sometime in July 2010.

Under these rules, all issues under the Family Code and other laws relating to custody, support, visitation, guardianship of minor child, property relations and other issues that may be the subject of a compromise agreement, must first be referred to a mediator while the main case will be suspended in the meantime.  Read the full text of the Rules here.
