Going through a divorce is one of the most difficult things anyone experiences in a lifetime. You are bombarded with seemingly-impossible choices at a time when a range of emotions can overwhelm you. When the decisions you have to make involve your children, it can be difficult to know what to do. It’s hard for both parents to remain objective when you have to make a parenting plan for sharing and raising your children.
Almost every couple faces the same dilemma and confronts the agony of realizing that they must consider the best interests of their children, not those of the parents. That’s why having a neutral person help you come up with the best solution for you, your children and your ex is a popular option.
A mediator is one of these neutral people, someone whose goal is to do what is best for the children. A mediator helps you agree on a parenting plan, including custody and visitation schedules that work for everyone.

Mediation Focuses on What’s Best for Children
The goal of mediation is to create a parenting plan that includes custody, visitation and a general philosophy about what is best for your children. It works in the long term if everyone benefits and it is something that both parents are committed to following.
