Cuyahoga County DR Court Adopts Local Rule 38: Parenting Coordination

The Cuyahoga County Domestic Relations Court has just adopted Local Rule 38: Parenting Coordination, effective today, November 20, 2014. This new Rule creates a new role for a Parenting Coordinator in working out disputes involving children. Appointments can be made for the following situations:

"(A) The Court may order parenting coordination, sua sponte or upon written or oral motion by one or both parties, when one or more of the following factors are present: 

(1) The parties have ongoing disagreements about the implementation of a parental rights and responsibilities or companionship time order and need assistance; 

(2) There is a history of extreme or ongoing parental conflict that has been unresolved by previous litigation or other interventions and from which a child of the parties is adversely affected; 

(3) The parties have a child whose parenting time schedule requires frequent adjustments, specified in an Order of the Court, to maintain age-appropriate contact with both parties, and the parties have been previously unable to reach agreements on their parenting time schedule without intervention by the Court; 

(4) The parties have a child with a medical or psychological condition or 
disability that requires frequent decisions regarding treatment or frequent adjustments in the parenting time schedule, specified in an order of the Court, and the parties have been previously unable to reach agreements on their parenting time schedule without intervention by the Court; 

(5) One or both parties suffer from a medical or psychological condition or 
disability that results in an inability to reach agreements on or make adjustments in their parenting time schedule without assistance, even when minor in nature; 

(6) Any other factor as determined by the Court."

Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court is Adding a Veterans Court

Last week, the Judges of the Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court voted to create a Veterans Court. According to Courtnewsohio.gov, the new Court will open next year, in January 2015. Some of the issues to which the court will be devoted will be "unemployment, post-traumatic stress syndrome, traumatic brain injuries, homelessness, drugs, and crime. ...Another goal of the Veterans Court is to forge partnerships among the Veterans Administration, public agencies, and community-based organizations, to generate local support." The Judges will possess discretion to transfer cases to the Veterans Court, "where the defendant will take part in the program for a minimum of 12 months. All felony-level cases that are eligible for probation (Community Control Sanctions/CCS) may be transferred to the Veterans Court, but priority will be given to high-risk, high-need veteran defendants."
