Mediated Custody Agreements
Your Children First
Children are often innocent bystanders in drawn-out, acrimonious divorces. And while divorce is not easy for children, more often than not it’s the conflict between parents that harms the children, not the divorce itself.
This is why a mediated custody agreement is an ideal option for your family, where both parents can sit down with Julia and find a mutually agreeable parenting plan. You can negotiate custody, child support, or any other child-related disputes. All without involving the courts, and more importantly the children.
Julia understands the complexities and sensitivities involved with child custody, and will strive for an agreement that is best for your child and both parents. She also offers the option of including a child specialist – a mental health professional who will meet with your child individually and bring their concerns to the mediation, if the parents agree to do so.
Parents can participate with an attorney, or opt to mediate with Julia on their own. Julia can draft and file documents with the court when necessary.
The mediation is a preferable option both for divorcing parents, and already-divorced parents who need to modify custody. Here’s why:
- Mediated custody agreements focus on the best interests of the child
- They create solutions specially tailored to your family’s needs
- Agreements establish a better co-parenting relationship
- Mediated custody agreements are faster and generally cost less
- The entire process is completely confidential
- Courts never intervene
