Mediated Parenting Plans the best solutions for your family

A mediated parenting plan is often the best solution for creating a plan that suits you and your family’s needs. Family Mediators are trained in the legal aspects of family law, as well as being able to offer methods to reduce opportunities for disputes, so that you can truly focus on the most important things in your life – your family.

Divorce is hard on everyone in the family, often due to the uncertainty created by the whole situation, but a good parenting plan can be an awesome tool to help you to reduce a lot of that uncertainty thereby reducing the opportunity for disputes to arise in the first place.

Let’s face it: when a family separates, the things most often argued about are the small details which develop into huge arguments. Things like who will collect the child, nicknames, after school activities and who pays for the outings are often the spark which ignite the bonfire of massive arguments.

A properly mediation parenting plan helps parents to make arrangements on all of these aspects of life, to help to minimise the chances of future areas of disputes. A good parenting plan will reduce the levels of uncertainty in a time where most parents feel overwhelmed by all of the arrangements that need to be made after a separation or divorce.

In a parenting plan mediation session, the mediator is trained to walk you through all of the mundane, daily activities that your need to include in your parenting plan, as well as handling major decisions, in a way that is designed to minimize the trauma that often goes with trying to plan these details.

The mediator never takes sides and uses techniques to minimise the conflict, while working with both parties to create a plan which meets the courts requirements and which is tailored around your unique needs as a family. Mediators also often offer follow-up services at discounted rates to help to ensure your mediated parenting plan grows with your family and takes into account the changing needs of your children.
