Family courts to hire and train bilingual divorce mediators

"Nashville has a growing Hispanic population and is believed to have the largest group of Kurds in the country and a significant number of Somalis. There aren't enough trained family court mediators who can help them if they choose to divorce."

"To help them, Metro Court officials are getting grant money to train Spanish-, Kurdish- and Somali-speaking mediators."

"Applicants must have a graduate degree or be a certified public accountant. They also have to have four years of experience in psychiatry, psychology, counseling, social work, education, law or accounting."

"Anyone interested in applying for the training can e-mail a request for an application to or fax the inquiry to 880-2315."
