CHILDREN

Choosing mediation is a great first step in making choices that are in the best interest of your family.  Two parents that work together to make choices that take into account each parent’s wishes and goals for each child are far ahead of parents that choose the traditional divorce approach.  Unlike traditional divorce, which can be combative in nature with each person seeking to gain advantage and out maneuver the other party, mediation is about putting the children’s best interest first.  This is done by deciding together what their best interest is and then designing a new living situation that incorporates the reality of the splitting up of your family.
