In Case of Joint Custody
PLEASE BE ADVISED
In the event of a joint custody arrangement, or a custody dispute, a Joint Custody Consent Form must be signed by both caregivers for the child to receive service. The child cannot receive service until the Joint Custody Consent form is signed. We are unable to offer counseling for high conflict families, or in the event of active/upcoming legal proceedings. Thank you for understanding.
