Mediation is a Valuable Tool for Resolving Child Custody and Parenting Time Issues

Mediation is a valuable tool for resolving child custody and parenting time issues in a North County divorce.  The experience of the divorce itself is challenging for most people. When children are involved the equation becomes much more complex. One of the most difficult issues for many parties is the resolution of questions surrounding child custody and parenting time in a North County or Carlsbad divorce. These issues must be completely resolved before a divorce can be finalized.

Mediation is an excellent option for those seeking a cost-effective and timely alternative to hashing things out in open court on the public record.  Mediation is a private, confidential and productive environment which is designed to facilitate a candid focused conversation while protecting each party.

Mediation is a valuable tool for resolving child custody and parenting time issues when the parties are stuck in opposing positions or simply unable to develop a workable solution.  A good family law mediator will work to establish common ground, help each party to express their positions, identify and work through potential options and ultimately agree upon a resolution.

Mediation will provide long-term tools which help to build a new foundation for working through issues in a more cooperative and efficient manner.  This not only helps to resolve the issues at hand but establishes an effective working relationship which will serve the parties long after the divorce is completed.

Psychiatrists will tell you agreements which are negotiated by the parties have a much stronger likelihood of success. Mediated agreements reduce post-decree litigation and the costly court actions which others experience.  Mediation usually results in reduced stress and emotional duress and the opportunity to work toward a solution that will reflect the best interests of the children and the natural existing rhythms of the family.
