Parents who choose Parent Mediation often share certain goals and characteristics—listed below in bold. To decide whether Parent Mediation is the right law firm for you, please review these goals and characteristics. If both parents agree with most items listed below, they may schedule an initial consultation with a Parent Mediation lawyer using the scheduling button to the right.
Parents who are willing to cooperate with each other
Parents who choose Parent Mediation need to be willing to cooperate. Parent Mediation may not be the right law firm for parents who presently are unable to cooperate or who find themselves in high conflict.
Parents who do not want to fight with each other
Parent Mediation is a good fit for parents who do not want to fight with each other. Parents who choose Parent Mediation value a peaceful resolution of legal, parenting and financial issues. Parent Mediation is dedicated to helping cooperative parents stay on the path of peace so they may resolve important issues.
Parents who value the well-being of their children (and grandchildren)
Parents of young children want their kids to “be okay.” They want their children to “get what they need.” They do not want their children to grow up as refugees in a divorce war. Parent Mediation helps parents to address all important parenting issues, so their children may have the highest level of well-being possible under the circumstances.
Even adult children can worry when parents divorce. Whether they are 7 years old or 27 years old, children hope that their parents can cooperate and be friends. The same applies to grandchildren. A peaceful path through divorce helps parents cooperate and be positive role models for each child and grandchild, no matter how old.
Parents who want closure
Parents who choose Parent Mediation do not want to spend any more time than necessary in the process of divorcing. At Parent Mediation, the mediation session(s) and drafting of the agreement(s) often are completed within a matter of weeks. A mutual consent no-fault divorce may be completed as early as 1 to 4 months from the first mediation session. If parents want to take more time between mediation sessions, or wait to finalize their divorce, they may take as much time as they need.
Parents who want to decide what is best for themselves and their children
At Parent Mediation, parents make the decisions. Parents decide the terms of their agreements. Parents decide when mediation sessions will take place.
A Parent Mediation lawyer makes sure that parents address every important issue. Even if parents already have come up with terms of agreement before a mediation session, their Parent Mediation lawyer checks to make sure parents have decided all necessary points.
Parents who do not want to communicate through separate lawyers
Parents work together—not separately—with their Parent Mediation lawyer. This creates an atmosphere of trust and collaboration between parents that is unlike any other path through separation and divorce. Their Parent Mediation lawyer works as a neutral helper and guide—not taking the side of either parent against the other.
If they choose to do so, parents may consult with other professionals before and after mediation sessions. Separation and divorce involve spiritual, healthcare, financial as well as legal issues. Parent Mediation respects the right of each parent to consult with other skilled professionals along the way.
Parents who want the least costly divorce
Parents often are concerned about what they will spend on their divorce. Parent Mediation utilizes mediation and mutual consent no-fault divorce—typically the least costly of divorce procedures. Parents receive a written fee estimate at their initial consultation with Parent Mediation, so they know in advance what their divorce may cost.
