When parents separate or divorce each other, there is usually the issue of child custody that must be resolved. The parents can negotiate custody terms and conditions privately or with the help of a lawyer. If they don’t come to an agreement, the court will have to hold hearings to determine who is the best parent to raise the kids. In case sole custody is awarded, visitation rights will have to be granted to the other party. Mediation services for child access may be needed.
While a parent may be awarded full custody, it is in the best interest of the children for the other parent to have access. When looking for a mediator, experience is a key factor to be considered. After all, licensed mediators with plenty of experience know how best to help clients to get the best results possible.
