By selecting mediation, parents are committing to work together to determine what is best for their children.

For Mediation To Work, Both Parents Must Agree With The Following

  • Each parent wants the best for their children
  • Each parent is a good parent in his or her own way
  • Contact with both parents is best for the children
  • Parents will communicate with each other regularly over time about their children’s welfareParenting Mediation Services
