Parenting Mediation

Mediation can be used to quicky and effectively make parenting arrangements between you and your ex, or other people such as grandparents.

Parenting Mediation

In a Mediation, an independent chairperson (the Mediator) hosts and guides a conversation between the parties to help them identify and assess options in order to reach an agreement about issues that were unresolved between them such as proper division or parenting arrangements.

Typical issues dealt with during Mediation include:

  • Who the child/ren are to live with
  • How much time they are to spend with the other parent
  • Involvement of third parties including step parents and grandparents
  • Allocation of responsibility for payment of additional child related expenses (not dealt with in a Child Support assessment)
  • Arrangements for special days and holidays
  • Arrangements for how you and your ex are to communicate with each other about the children.

We can assist you to reach agreement about the above issues and to draft your agreement into Consent Orders for your review and consideration, or for you to take to your Family Lawyer.
