What is sole legal custody, joint legal custody, or shared custody?

Sole legal custody, joint legal custody, or shared custody are terms that may be viewed by some as “fighting words”.  The words alone can cause fear among parents about who is considered the “primary” caretaker.   Experienced divorce mediators help parents reduce the fear factor and focus on what is in the best interest of the children, and what works for the parents.

The mediator will help you to focus on your strengths and use those skills to promote the best interests of the children. Parents generally want to maintain control over the decisions that need to be made for their children. Divorce mediation helps the parties to develop skills to communicate with each other to coordinate the parenting plan over time, suiting the needs of all parties.
