The seminar will be held on Thursday, June 7 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Lone Star Community Building, 5000 Research Forest Drive in The Woodlands.

The seminar is non-technical and is geared toward anyone interested in learning how mediation can save you and your family time, money and relationships, including anyone who knows someone heading for divorce or who has difficult family issues.  In addition, anyone who wants to know more about family mediation ranging from juvenile issues to elder care would also benefit from the seminar.
