Custody Mediation

Working out Time Sharing and Co-Parenting through Mediation

The least costly, less stressful approach to reaching agreements about where your children will live and how time-sharing and co-parenting will work, is through mediation.


To Make Mediation Work:

  • Prepare a draft Parenting Plan
  • Be prepared to share information
  • Be prepared to listen and to be open to new suggestions and creative ideas
  • Focus on the needs of the children

Create a detailed parenting plan that focuses on the unique needs of your children including:

  • Where the children will live.
  • How much time they will spend with each parent.
  • How holidays, vacations, and special days will be shared.
  • How pickup and drop offs will work.
  • How major decisions will be decided including: schooling, medical care, extracurricular activities and religious upbringing.
  • Any other issues that impact the children.
Thank you! Without this, we will still be having a hard time with communication. Especially when emotions get involved.
