Mediation Education is a 30 minute class explaining what mediation entails. This class is required if you are filing for divorce/separation or modification in the Sixth Judicial District. These counties are Johnson, Linn, Jones, Tama, Benton, and Iowa. This class is presented in the first 30 minutes of the divorcing and separating parents class (children in the middle). If you are only required to take Mediation Education, you will be free to leave after the 30 minute class.
