Divorce and child custody disputes can be extremely difficult for parents. However, these delicate issues are even more emotionally challenging for the children involved. Many parents attempt to minimize the emotional strain experienced by their children by working to achieve amicable resolutions to divorce and child custody issues through mediation. Others find themselves before a mediator as a last attempt at seeking resolution before bringing their case to trial.

Mediating child custody issues can be beneficial to both parents and children. Mediation allows you to remain in control of the important decisions being made, rather than allowing a judge to make decisions about your future and the future of your children. Child custody mediation offers many other advantages:
California law requires mediation in all divorce cases where child custody and parenting issues are disputed before the case can proceed to trial. This process allows you to look at all options and define a customized solution to meet your needs and the best interests of your children — in an open and respectful forum. In many cases, the result is some form of a shared parenting plan. However, when matters cannot be decided through mediation, the case may proceed to trial.
