• How Custody Mediation can Help With Divorce

    on Sep 29th, 2016

There are couples who can reach an amicable agreement. However, sometimes the two parents are at distinct odds of how child custody should be carried out. These situations can benefit greatly from custody mediation. 

Discuss All Aspects of Custody

Mediation gives you an opportunity to address any concerns you have. A mediator is a neutral party who is not representing either you or your former partner. Therefore, all of these concerns can be addressed professionally. Some issues that can be brought into play include:

•    Discussing potential mental health problems with one of the spouses
•    Evaluating whether one of the parents has a drug or alcohol problem
•    Discussing a boyfriend/girlfriend and how he or she could affect the child
•    For special needs children, determining what is in the best interests of the kid

In order to get the most out of your sessions, you should write down what problems you want addressed so that nothing gets overlooked. 

Everyone is on the Same Page

You need to tell the mediator and your attorney what you hope to get out of this divorce so that everyone remains on the same page. By keeping everyone in the loop, your attorney is not fighting for something that was not brought up in the mediation sessions. 

Many couples can benefit from mediation, and it is worthwhile to look into. Learn more by calling Gary Santucci, Ed.S. in Davie, FL.
