Divorce mediation is a process that focuses on resolving your divorce issues without litigation. Child custody mediation allows you to create a parenting plan for your child without having to have a judge create the plan for you. A divorce mediation attorney and child custody mediation attorney does not represent either party, but rather acts as a neutral unbiased third party who helps you negotiate an agreement between you and your significant other.

If you are currently participating in private mediation you should have an independent attorney to consult with and help you understand your legal options and to review paperwork and agreements before you sign them.
