Addressing Your Children's Needs: Custody Mediation

Every parent who has faced divorce or separation understands the worries that go along with such a major transition. How will your children cope? What will their day-to-day life look like? How can you protect their emotional well-being and continue to foster their growth? Your child custody arrangement will affect many of the answers to these questions.

Child custody is one of the most stressful aspects of divorce or separation. Yet these important decisions don't have to be made by a stranger. Why place your children's future in someone else's hands rather than your own? Through mediation, you can regain a say in how to structure your children's lives going forward.

Equipping You To Make The Right Decisions

At Resolve Attorney Mediators of Rochester, we're committed to fostering a more open, cooperative approach to resolving child custody matters. We believe that, in the vast majority of cases, nobody is better equipped to make decisions about your children's future than you — the child's parents. By working out a realistic custody arrangement through mediation, you can avoid the stress, expense and uncertainty of going to court.

Our lawyers have a wealth of experience working through difficult custody cases. Courts often send us challenging cases in our capacity as parenting coordinators, and we use proven problem-solving strategies to resolve them outside of court.

Our attorney-mediators understand the importance of your children's well-being. Both have served as court-appointed lawyers for children and parenting coordinators, giving them a well-rounded perspective on how to look out for children's interests.

Drawing on more than 40 years of combined family law experience, we will walk you through the many considerations that go along with child custody, including:

  • How to make joint decisions and effectively co-parent
  • What time-sharing schedule makes the most sense in light of job schedules, school schedules and home environments
  • How to make modifications due to life's changes as time goes by

When appropriate, we utilize other professional resources — such as psychologists and therapists — to address all aspects of child custody. Ultimately, our goal is to empower you to work out a plan that's best for your family.
