ommunity Services

When families fight only the lawyers win.

In 2001 Judge Mary R. Kovack established a Community Services Office to refer families to agencies and resources in the community that do not require additional expenditures of taxpayers’ dollars.  This service was created to help families cope with the changes in their lives during a divorce, dissolution or in any post divorce disputes. Through the Community Services Office, parents can obtain information about counselors, classes, support groups and the like.  Over the years, the Community Services Office has come to encompass a number of Court services that are available at no or low cost to families including mediation, case services assessments, supervised parenting time and exchanges, intensive case management and domestic violence victim service coordination.
