How is custody decided in mediation?


  • A mediator will help you reach an agreement about who will make parenting decisions or if they will be made jointly. The mediation process will result in a custody and parenting plan that will likely be more beneficial for you and any children than if you leave the decision up to the court
  • One mediation goal is fashioning a custody and parenting plan to include how parental responsibility is exercised so that you can continue to maintain a loving relationship between both parents and the child or children
