• The mediation process is created by the mediator together with the parties.
  • When discussing custody and parenting issues, from time to time spouses may ask that children participate in the mediation. However, it is often not in the best interests of the children to be involved in adult decisions in the mediation setting. It is usually better for the adults alone to discuss and resolve custody and parenting issues
  • There are situations involving older children, depending upon their maturity and age, where a court will listen to and consider their preferences. Usually in mediation though, the parents enter into an agreement and make the important decisions
