When married couples decide to start a family, they often imagine their future including all the childhood milestones, family vacations and holidays spent together as a family unit. Thus, when parents decide to divorce, it can be challenging to think about these life events as a single parent. Furthermore, it could cause disputes concerning parenting time, holiday schedules and child support. Thus, it is important that divorcing parents fully understand their situation so they can take proper legal action.

The benefits of mediation
While litigation is often associated with the divorce process, it is not the necessary method or even required to finalize a divorce decree. Mediation is a method that helps parents not only collaborate to work through divorce issues but child custody and support matters as well.
Mediation or a collaborative divorce has its benefits, as it can help parents work better together in the future for their children. This means a better chance of successfully navigating custody and support issues in the future.
