When parents who are separating come to Family Mediation, often, the number one issue that needs to be resolved is Parenting Time. In other words, the schedule you will follow for when your children spend time with each parent. The schedule you create will lay the ground work for other pieces of your overall Parenting Plan such as Parent Responsibilities and Child Support. Here are 5 things to consider when creating your Parenting Schedule.
Parenting Time can be difficult to figure out on your own. Emotions can get in the way of an effective conversation. This is where you may need to enlist some help. Family Mediation can help you get through these difficult conversations while at the same time building a foundation for how you will communicate and make decisions in the future.
