10 the decisions they reach. The best interests of
11 children are normally served through maintenance of
12 maximum contact with both parents, with a minimum of
13 parental conflict.
14 Because research demonstrates that parental
15 conflict may result in emotional and psychological
16 damage to parties and their children, the general

17 assembly finds that mediation should be utilized to
18 the greatest extent possible in the resolution of
19 domestic relations disputes in this state.

21 striking the section and inserting in lieu thereof the

33 district's or court's authority to order settlement
34 conferences pursuant to rules of civil procedure. The
35 court shall, on application of a party, grant a waiver
36 from any court-ordered mediation under this section if
37 the party demonstrates that a history of domestic
38 abuse exists as specified in section 598.41,
39 subsection 3, paragraph "j".
40 2. The supreme court shall establish a dispute
41 resolution program in family law cases that includes
42 the opportunities for mediation and settlement
43 conferences. Any judicial district may implement such
44 a dispute resolution program, subject to the rules
45 prescribed by the supreme court.
46 3. The supreme court shall prescribe rules for the
47 mediation program, including the circumstances under
48 which the district court may order participation in

2 a. Participation in mediation shall include
3 attendance at a mediation session with the mediator
4 and the parties to the action, listening to the
5 mediator's explanation of the mediation process,
6 presentation of one party's view of the case, and
7 listening to the response of the other party.
8 Participation in mediation does not require that the
9 parties reach an agreement.
10 b. The parties may choose the mediator, or the
11 court shall appoint a mediator. a court-appointed
12 mediator shall meet the qualifications established by
13 the supreme court.
14 c. Parties to the mediation have the right to
15 advice and presence of counsel at all times.

16 d. The parties to the mediation shall present any
17 agreement reached through the mediation to their
18 attorneys, if any. a mediation agreement reached by
19 the parties shall not be enforceable until approved by
20 the court.
21 e. The costs of mediation shall be borne by the
22 parties, as agreed to by the parties, or as ordered by
23 the court, and may be taxed as court costs. Mediation
24 shall be provided on a sliding fee scale for parties
25 who are determined to be indigent pursuant to section
26 815.9.
27 5. The supreme court shall prescribe
28 qualifications for mediators under this section on or
29 before January 1, 2001. The qualifications shall
30 include but are not limited to the ethical standards
31 to be observed by mediators. The qualifications shall
32 not include a requirement that the mediator be
33 licensed to practice any particular profession.
34 Sec. 3. SUPREME COURT REPORT. The supreme court
35 shall submit a report to the general assembly by
36 January 1, 2001, which shall include any
37 recommendations for implementing, modifying, and
38 funding this Act.
39 Sec. 4. EFFECTIVE DATE. This Act takes effect
40 July 1, 2001, except that section 3 of this Act takes
41 effect upon enactment."
