A divorce may end a marriage but it does not end the necessity of establishing and maintaining a positive, working relationship for the benefit of the children from their marriage. The need to maintain this civil and well-mannered relationship may be needed for many years depending on the age of the children. Mediation is an excellent option to work through the necessary decisions that must be made in these emotionally charged situations.
These conversations are very effective when led by a mediator. I am a neutral guide and experienced in managing the dynamics of such conversations. Another powerful component is that decisions are mutually created and agreed upon. It is my role to keep both parties equally empowered to make these critical decisions for themselves and their children.
