Children are best served when parents maintain a cordial relationship. Through the structured process of mediation, couples can often set aside hostility and agree on key decisions affecting their children. Mediation can be a highly effective tool for parents to preserve their children’s well-being and the stability of their lives during the turbulent process of divorce: it takes some of the stress out of child custody conflicts and puts important child-rearing decisions in the hands of the parents rather than the court. We use mediation strategies to guide the negotiation process toward a healthy resolution.
