In October 2012, the district court judges of the Sixth Judicial District approved an annual roster fee for family mediators to be effective January 1, 2013. The fee was proposed by the Mediation Advisory Committee (MAC).
The fee will allow Mediation Services of Eastern Iowa, MSEI, the non-profit that oversees and maintains the roster and the family mediation program for the Sixth Judicial District, to cover its costs in maintaining the roster and the website, and managing information such as the mediators’ insurance and compliance with the continuing education requirements.
The annual fee of $120 must be paid by January 31 of each year. If payment is not received by January 31st, you will be dropped from the roster and the default mediator list(s) until payment is made. If you have any questions regarding this policy, please direct inquiries to the Executive Director of Mediation Services of Eastern Iowa, Annie Tucker. She can be reached at 319-248-1940 or via email.
