All mediators mediating under the Parenting Act are governed by the Act and related statutes, as well as guided by the Nebraska Standards and Ethics for Parenting Act Mediators . In addition, mediators who wish to be eligible for appointment by Nebraska's trial court judges to mediate Parenting Act cases must be approved by the Office of Dispute Resolution as a "Parenting Act mediator." The Policy for Approval of Parenting Act Mediators describes the approval process, mediator training and educational requirements, and mediator status and grievance process.
