Divorce mediation for parents of young children

It is fairly common for California parents who are in the middle of getting divorced to be filled with bitterness and resentment. They may have conflicts with each other that boil over into a battle that can be damaging to their children. It is possible for many couples to resolve their issues peacefully through mediation, an alternative dispute resolution process that occurs outside of the courtroom setting.

Children of parents who are engaged in high-conflict divorces often end up being used as pawns by their parents. This can lead to their suffering from anxiety, depression and stress. It can also lead to their being estranged from a parent or suffering from issues regarding loyalty.

Parents who are able to set aside their bitter feelings and go through divorce mediation may be able to resolve the outstanding issues in a peaceful way. It may also help them to focus on what is in their children's best interests so that their children can be better-adjusted both during and after the divorce.

Divorce mediation may provide a way for parents to negotiate an agreement so that they can move forward in a healthier and happier way. Parents who are able to negotiate the details of their own divorce and custody agreements may be happier with the results than they might be if they go through litigation Even after a divorce is final, people who share children will need to be able to work together as co-parents in order to effectively raise their children to grow up to be happy and healthy adults. People who believe that mediation might be an appropriate alternative to litigation in their divorce matters might want to talk to their attorneys about how the process might work for them.
