Family Law Mediation Training

Maine Association of Mediators (MAM) presents a three-day Family Law Mediation training designed for mediators, attorneys, counselors, and other helping professionals who want to be on the CADRES Family Matters roster or who encounter family law issues in their daily work. *There will also be an estimated one-hour reading and at-home exercises following each session to prepare for the subsequent training sessions.*

Family Law Mediation training provides 15 hours of family law instruction. The training covers the three major areas of divorce and family law cases: children, property, and support. Topics include parental rights and responsibilities, marital property, child support, spousal support, post-judgment actions, and other family law issues. During the training, participants will be introduced to relevant statutes, case law, court forms, case studies, and mediation agreements. Participants will also be calculating child support obligations using the Maine Child Support Guidelines and statutes for a variety of scenarios.

Pending: 15 CLE hours plus 1 Ethics hour and 16 CADRES hours available.

Instructors:

Pam Waite - A graduate of Smith College and the University of Maine School of Law, Pam represented the State of Maine as an Assistant Attorney General primarily in employment and tax matters for over 30 years. A skilled negotiator, she trained to become a mediator and now mediates privately; serves on the court rosters for family matters and foreclosure cases; and is also on the roster as a mediator for the Maine Human Rights Commission and the Maine Department of Education. Pam believes strongly in party self-determination and the importance of trying to resolve disputes by agreement as an alternative to engaging in lengthy and expensive litigation.
