Resolve Custody Disputes Without Going To Trial
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 to prior to the divorce. Koiles Pratt Family Law Group is experienced in mediation to effectively resolve child custody disputes without going to trial.
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 effectively through mediation with one of our attorneys acting as the mediator, the neutral third party.
