What is Child Custody Mediation?
Child custody mediation is a specialized form of mediation where a neutral mediator assists parents in negotiating and reaching agreements on parenting arrangements post-separation or divorce. This process emphasizes collaboration and open communication, aiming to establish a parenting plan that serves the best interests of the children.
Our Child Custody Mediation Process
We facilitate constructive discussions on important aspects of child custody, including:
- Physical Custody: Determining where the child will live and the parenting time schedule.
- Legal Custody: Decisions regarding the child’s education, healthcare, and overall welfare.
- Co-Parenting Plans: Crafting plans that support cooperative parenting and minimize conflict.
- Modifications: Addressing changes in circumstances that may require adjustments to custody arrangements.
Benefits of Child Custody Mediation
