Co-Parenting Issues Requiring Mediation Services

Mediation for Divorced Parents

Many co-parents find that their original parenting plan does not adequately address issues they are facing post-divorce…. or their family circumstances have changed. Parenting plans are notoriously hard to change, once in place. If you and your co-parent find yourself continually facing the same issues, mediation is a fantastic option for you.

Mediation is the least adversarial process to resolve conflicts.

An experienced mediator can help these couples resolve issues, rather than hiring attorneys, preparing for battle, and heading to court. For a fraction of the cost, our experienced team will provide a comfortable forum for each party to voice their concerns and perspective(s) on the issue(s). We work with you to come to an agreement while avoiding the time, expense, acrimony, and hassle of litigation.
