Child Custody Agreements

Even though you and your soon-to-be ex may agree on child custody and visitation issues, it is still a good idea to consult with an attorney. An experienced family law attorney knows the  pitfalls and how to avoid them.  It is best to get that agreement down while you are both willing to agree.  Often there is no issue until a new significant other comes into the picture and
feels the need to “fix” what is already working.  If you have an agreement that is thorough, it
often relieves the pressure of the party to be able to say, “sorry, this is court ordered.”

I encourage anyone who is going through a divorce, but can put the children first and come to an agreement to do so as soon as possible.  It will likely be the best opportunity for an agreement to be made, and some money saved both in the present, and the future.

If you or someone you know is considering divorce or mediation they should speak with an attorney who has knowledge on both. Mediation is a voluntary method used for conflict resolution. Mediation is an alternative to divorce. Mediation is preffered due to the lower cost. Divorce can be long and drawn out an can be more costly. Divorce is not always costly, it will depend if the party on the other side is agreeable.

In a mediation session the mediator is a neutral third party. The mediator used must remain unbiased throughout the entire process. The two parties must voluntarily decide to attend mediation. The neutral third party mediatior is there to facilitate constructive dialogue between the two parties. The mediator is not there to give there advice or solutions for a problem the parties are facing. It is up to the parties alone to work out an amicable agreement.
