Advantages of mediation
Children are best served when parents establish a cordial relationship. Through the structured process of mediation, couples can often set aside hostility and agree on key points concerning their children. Mediation can be a highly effective tool for parents to preserve the stability and well-being of their children’s lives during the turbulent process of divorce. The predictability of mediation can relieve the stress of child custody conflicts and puts important child-rearing decisions in the parents’ hands, rather than in the court’s power. We meticulously develop mediation strategies that carefully guide the negotiating process toward healthy resolution.
In support of litigation
In some cases, litigation is necessary to protect your children’s best interests. When a parent refuses to compromise or expresses hostility toward the other parent, negotiations fail. In some cases, a parent poses a danger to the children’s well-being, rendering litigation the most appropriate forum for establishing parental rights. Through our methodical approach to litigation, parents can feel confident that their children are protected and their parental rights are secure.
