Child Custody Mediation

Child custody is more than just a visitation schedule; it is also a means for parents to determine how they will make decisions concerning their child's well-being and resolve conflicts together in the future. The mediation process can successfully achieve these goals. We ensure the best interests of the child and parents are addressed and that the custody order leaves the child in as similar a position as possible prior to the divorce.

Koiles Pratt Family Law Group provides experienced, thorough and effective child custody mediation services. We are located in Salem, and our dedication to our clients has given us a reputation for excellence in divorce mediation services statewide. We can help with your child custody and parenting time agreement, and any other issues you may be facing in your divorce.

Custody Mediation And Children

There are many benefits to using mediation for child custody and parenting time agreements. It is usually more cost-effective and efficient than litigation, and it also truly gives parents the ability to make a detailed, customized child custody agreement. In addition, there are more nuances to child custody than parents realize. A few examples of these considerations include:

  • What happens to the parenting schedule during one parent's vacation?
  • What happens if there are after-school activities?
  • What if the child wants to go to a friend's house?
  • How will medical decisions be handled?
  • How will religion be addressed?
  • How will college decisions be addressed?

All of these issues can be resolved through mediation to create a comprehensive co-parenting plan.
