Under this rule, if in a domestic relations proceeding involving custody, periods of parental responsibility, or visitation of minor children, the parties have not filed a parenting plan or undergone binding arbitration, the court may order the parties to attend a general information session, meet with a counselor, or participate in mediation, priority consultation, or advisory consultation. The rule outlines procedures for conducting these three resolution methods. The rule also specifies that all communications are privileged.
