An award-winning attorney, Marc Rovner of East Rockaway, New York, serves as director of business development and general counsel at BETA Abstract LLC. Outside of supervising the firm’s legal department, attorney Marc Rovner supports a number of charities, including the Children’s Rights Council.

Incorporated in 1985, the Children’s Rights Council works to ensure that children enjoy meaningful relationships with their parents, no matter their parents’ marital status. In addition to facilitating positive interactions between children and their parents, the organization advocates for custody reform and administers a mediation program.

CRC’s mediation program can be either a court-ordered or a voluntary process, initiated by one or both parents and guided by a neutral third party. The mediator oversees the discussion and negotiation process to provide clarity and reach a consensus that is beneficial for the child or children involved. Although not involved in decision making, the mediator can suggest solutions and help both parties ease their concerns.

Following mediation, the mediator also helps both parties in finalizing the written agreement.
