Minor problems with parenting time are best resolved by the parties. With major and/or recurrent parenting time problems, the FOC office may be contacted in writing by filing a “Parenting Time Affidavit.” The form and instructions are available on this website. Once reviewed by a Friend of the Court mediator, the parties may be asked to meet with the mediator to attempt to resolve the problems. If the problems cannot be resolved, the case may be set for a hearing before the Circuit Court Referee. Possible sanctions for noncompliance with a court order include makeup parenting time, imposition of court costs, or even the imposition of jail time. Friend of the Court staff do not solve parenting time problems between the parties; rather, FOC staff are available to assist the parties in creating their own solutions to the problem.
