Many Changes – Many Questions
As divorcing parents or separating partners, you may feel confused and overwhelmed by the decisions you face regarding caring for your children and managing financially. These questions arise when mutual trust is low and communication may be poor. And just like you, your children have questions, such as:
- “Where will we live?”
- “Will I still see both of you?”
- “Who will take care of me?”
As a family, you may feel as if your world has been turned upside down. At a time when children need certainty, they are often swept into the uncertainty of their parents’ breakup, so keeping them out of the crossfire is vital.
The Benefits of a Neutral Environment
Mediation through Family Law Center offers a neutral place where, as parents, you can plan for your children’s care and discuss your shared responsibilities. Working together with one of our confidential mediator-attorneys, you can resolve legal and physical custody issues and decide how you will share your children’s time and parenting duties. Whether you’re able to work together to reach the best resolution for your children or if you need an advocate for you in California Family Court, we can help.
Reaching a Mutual Agreement … In Writing
We will help you develop your own written parenting plan, which describes how decisions will be made (Legal Custody) and when the children will be with each parent (Physical Custody). The Physical Custody plan, or time-sharing schedule, includes a regular schedule as well as one for holidays and vacations. It can also include co-parent and other agreements that relate to the care and responsibility of your children. When you reach an agreement, our mediator-attorney can prepare a legally binding stipulation and court order to be filed with the family court in your county.
Being Prepared for Court
When it comes to determining child custody and parenting plans, Family Law Center’s main goal is to reach an agreement prior to court. But if you and the other parent are unable to agree on custody or visitation, a judge will make the decision for you – so you need a strong advocate and professional to help you. We understand how to present your case to a judge as well as the factors that will be considered in your child custody case. Our attorney-mediators are compassionate and conscientious – yet tough when a situation demands it – and we are ready to help you.
