Your Visitation Rights May Be Best Addressed Through Mediation

Our lawyers can assist you in deciding on a parenting plan that works for all involved

Sorting out visitation rights can be overwhelming, which is why our family law lawyers are here to mediate so that a parenting schedule can be decided on that works for both parents. Mediation is a good venue to work out your visitation schedule, which is now known as a parenting plan. In mediation, it is possible to craft a parenting plan that is particular to your schedule and concerns, as well as your child or children's needs. This is because the mediation setting is informal and flexible; it allows you to take your time in expressing your concerns and perspectives. Through mediation, you can take (almost) as long as you want and address details you would not otherwise be able to address in court. 

Having a lawyer as a mediator can help you understand the scope of visitation rights, or parenting rights, that you and the other parent have. A lawyer mediator can ask the right questions to make sure that you are adequately addressing all of the points needed to clearly define your rights and your child’s needs in a parenting plan. When it comes to child visitation rights, there are a lot of details that can be addressed. You want to make sure that you fully understand what your parenting plan entails, to avoid any future conflicts.

As you sort out child visitation rights, it might be in you or your child’s best interest to formulate a parenting plan in mediation.
