Disputes involving guardianship or custody can be emotionally draining on the parties involved. All too often, when the final decision is left in the hands of the court, no one is completely satisfied. By using mediation, the parties have the opportunity to have candid conversations, which help to re-establish trust and understanding the rationale behind everyone’s positions. Concerns relating to both children and adults can be addressed through mediation.;
At mediation, no matter what the concerns are they can be addressed. Who should be the primary caregiver? How will the expenses be handled? What should be done with the home now that no one is living in it? Who will be responsible for the safekeeping of the child.
