Child Permanency Mediation is offered through a joint program with CIP and the Alternative Dispute Resolution Early Settlement Mediation Program. It is designed to assist parties in deprived cases come to consensus recommendations on how best to move a case forward to permanency, and it can be used at any point in the life of a case:

  • At the beginning of a case, prior to adjudication
  • At six months to resolve issues with engaging parents in individual service plans
  • If permanency goals change from reunification to adoption

Early Settlement Mediation can assist in creating solutions that improve permanency outcomes for children and families.
