Separated or divorced parents often find themselves in a situation where they can not communicate with each other in a constructive way anymore. This can make co-parenting in future very difficult.
A Parenting Plan is a ROAD-MAP that provides parents with clearly defined rules regarding their parenting relationship. If this document is drafted with the help of a trained professional, it serves to eliminate a lot of future conflict.
A Family Law Mediator has been trained in both the legalities regarding a properly formulated Parenting Plan, and also in the psychology of specific age groups of children (What is appropriate for a child at which age).
Mediation, in its nature, also provide parents an opportunity to formulate a Parenting Plan that will address the unique nature of their own family.
