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.
Call the skilled Orange County divorce attorney at Alternative Divorce Solutions at (949) 558-2624 today to get the advocacy you need for your mediation proceedings.
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.
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.
