Collaborative lawyers and mediators help create a safe and secure setting where people learn to communicate more effectively. You will develop strategies to create the parenting schedule in a family focused model.
Mediation is collaborative and cooperative.
The mediation process is “child focused” and the strengths and abilities of each parent are identified to support the children’s needs. Parents are encouraged to continue to be mutually responsible and involved in major decisions regarding the children’s welfare.
Through mediation and collaborative law, both parties maintain strong relationships with the children by assuring the children have frequent and continued contact with both parents. Collaborating maximizes parenting time for both parents and kids. Everyone wins!
