Using Mediation For Child Custody Disputes

Child custody is often one of the most stressful aspects of divorce. These types of highly emotional issues often fuel bitter and costly disputes that can breed dysfunction and make it difficult for parents to effectively co-parent.

For the sake of their child, however, parents must take steps to move beyond hurt feelings and high emotions and move forward. Mediation can be an effective way to resolve child custody disputes. In mediation, parents come together with a trained mediator to discuss and come to an agreement regarding custody.

The benefits of mediation for both parents and children are plentiful and include helping you find solutions that protect your parental rights and your relationship with your child.

Learn How To Co-Parent Effectively Into The Future

Even if your children are nearing age 18, you and your ex-spouse will likely have to continue to interact well into the future. If your children are young, you will have to work together to make important decisions about health care, education and religion. Mediation can allow you to:

  • Save money — Instead of investing money in a divorce, you can invest that money in your children's future and your new lives.
  • Protect your children from bitter disputes — By working together, you will be showing your children that they are still your top priority in a divorce, helping them adjust better.
  • Remain in control of the process — You and your co-spouse can work together on living arrangements, holiday schedules, school vacations and other issues that a judge may not take as much care in determining.
