Hesitating to give mediation a try for your child custody issues?

Divorce affects the whole family. As parents, most Massachusetts residents want to do what they can to make the process less stressful and frightening for their children. For this reason, parents may want to resolve their child custody issues outside of the courtroom, but hesitate because they do not know whether they can do it.

Fortunately, as long as the parties are willing and able to put aside their marital issues and work together, it can be done. One of the biggest draws of mediation is the fact that the parties involved retain control over the outcome. They can create a child custody agreement and parenting plan that works best for their family.

Mediation can also help parents communicate better post-divorce. The process works to eliminate blame, and instead, put the focus on the future and working together to give the children a secure and loving atmosphere in which they can thrive despite all of the upcoming changes. Everyone should experience less stress, which helps the children get through the divorce. Typically, mediation also costs less than litigation, which is a draw for many Massachusetts couples. The hope is that by the end of the process, the parents know better how to reduce conflicts and understand how to relate better to each other as co-parents.

Even when couples choose to mediate their child custody issues, it does not eliminate the need for each of them to protect their individual rights. Like any other part of the divorce process, each party has certain rights, and it is up to them to make sure any agreement they come to does not take away anything to which they are entitled. For this reason, many people choose to work with an attorney since the mediator does not represent either party.
