Increasingly, divorcing or separating couples are turning to more collaborative solutions to child custody. Mediation is a common — and sometimes mandatory — step toward reaching a workable custody arrangement.
Mediation can help avoid the delay and expense of a lengthy court battle. With the assistance of a knowledgeable third-party neutral, many couples are able to agree on win-win resolutions that are tailored to fit their family’s needs. Many also find it empowering to work through their own custody decisions rather than leave those important decisions in the hands of a stranger.
By offering a collaborative, give-and-take process for resolving differences, and by promoting open communication, mediation sets a positive tone for a successful co-parenting experience down the road.
