Going to Court and litigating your issue/conflict may not always provide you with the best resolution to your matter.
In fact, you will quickly discover that the process can be very stressful, emotional, time consuming, extremely costly, and last for years, resulting in an outcome that may not be what you intended at the outset or necessarily be the most effective solution especially if children are involved.
NOW YOU HAVE AN OPTION. Consider Mediation, and Peacemaking Circle/Mediation to create the best resolutions possible for your situation….
WHY? Because you understand your situation and this provides you with an opportunity to be directly involved in creating your own resolutions. “Every choice makes a difference”
Separation …. Divorce ….
When parents separate/divorce they have choices to make regarding their children’s care and upbringing and can determine which choices are in the best interest of their precious children.
Mediation can help where:
• the children are the primary focus. • the children’s physical and emotional needs are upper most.
A neutral third party mediator, who is an effective listener, is caring, and understands family dynamics can assist you both:
• in effectively communicating with the other parent. • in creating resolutions that will provide the best possible options to create a physically, emotionally and healthy environment for your precious children now and in the future.
For example, together you both can establish a clear and concise parenting (access) plan, which considers all statutory and personal religious holidays, school breaks, special events. This will better assist you and your children to have consistency and move forward with your new circumstances.
