Custody Mediation Assistance & Advice
Our Orange County Divorce Attorney Can Help
The decisions affecting the well-being of children are some of the most difficult ones to make and often are some of the most hotly-contested during a divorce. Where will a child primarily live? Where will they attend school? Will they move far away from the rest of their extended family if one parent chooses to do so?
All of these questions and more need to be carefully parsed by parents during the divorce process. California has mandated for a mediation process to allow parents a chance to resolve any child custody disagreements and come to an ultimate decision that is beneficial to all parties involved. With so much on the line, it is important that you retain experienced legal representation before entering into the mediation proceedings to guide you through the process and ensure your rights are protected.

The Mediation Process in California
There are numerous questions that must be answered and a Child Custody Recommending Counselor (a mediator, essentially) will help you work through them all in the most efficient and beneficial way. This mediator will then help you build a plan that is uniquely qualified to serve your particular family needs.
The mediation process is designed with three distinct goals in mind:
- To create a customized parenting plan that is in the best interest of the children involved
- To create a parenting plan that allows children to spend time with both parents
- To help parents deal with and overcome any feelings of anger or resentment
Mediation is the time to resolve the issue in a seamless manner, and so you may need assistance on what not to say in child custody mediation. In some cases, custody mediation can be interfered with by extenuating circumstances that may not allow both parents to meet and create their plan face to face. When this is the case, alternative dispute resolution options exist. Whatever your situation may be, it is important to have a strong legal advocate on your side whenever going into any child custody proceedings.
