Still time to sign up for Court’s October Settlement Week
The Franklin County Domestic Relations and Juvenile Court is hosting another Settlement Week to help resolve contentious cases.
During the week of October 16-20, highly skilled mediators will be available to help parties reach agreements. More than 40 cases are currently signed up and the last day to do so is September 18.
While settlements and resolutions may be reached at any time in the litigation process, Settlement Week is an opportunity for the Court to focus its efforts on helping many parties reach compromises. The resolution of cases helps prevent backlogs in the domestic relations court, while also serving parties by preventing further court costs, avoiding the uncertainty of trial, and allowing the parties to directly participate in the outcome of their own case.
The Court hosts two Settlement Weeks a year and the events have seen its share of successes. Many cases have been successfully mediated during the 3-hour sessions.
To refer a case to mediation, please contact the mediation department at or please alert the assigned judge or magistrate.
