How Will Child Custody Issues Affect Your Divorce Agreement?

Mediated Child Custody and Visitation Rights
Spouses often come into a divorce with their fists clenched about parenting time and custody. The courts expect the attorneys to do everything possible to avoid a trial. Mediation is a method of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) in which a mediator facilitates discussions about the children's needs and the parents' concerns. The mediator helps the parties arrange an agreement that both parties sign off on and the judge must approve. We are proven, experienced mediators who put a focus on efficient, effective results that can save you thousands of dollars in needless court and attorney fees.
