At The Divorce Help Clinic, our custody mediation and parenting plan mediation services assist divorced, divorcing and never-married parents in working together to develop a child-centered custody plan and improve your ability to co-parent.
Peace of mind is important, especially when your children are involved. When discussing your parenting plan (a.k.a. custody & visitation) your divorce mediator will guide you to resolve your custody issues in a sane, sensible and fair way at a reasonable cost.
What if we are Battling over Custody? Often times, making slight adjustments in your behavior during the divorce process is all it takes to get the court to divide custody time more evenly. Just because your situation may look helpless, doesn’t mean it is.
Note: All of the information on www.Dyvorce.com concerning parenting also pertains to never married parents, separated parents, or divorced parents. Child support and parenting rights and responsibilities are the same for everyone.
Parenting Plan: The final parenting plan document will have the written agreement which outline the details of what you and your spouse have agreed to (i.e. how often/when the children will be with each parent and how child-focused decisions will be made). Parenting plans typically include decision- making protocols, a day-to-day schedule, vacations, holidays and travel, as well as other parenting issues like move-aways.
NOTE: Research shows that when you compare couples who have mediated their divorce with couples who go through an adversarial divorce, mediating couples are more likely to be satisfied with the process and the result, likely to take less time and spend less money, and are less likely to go back to court later to fight about something.
