Starting Mediation
Mediation Sessions / Coordinator Sessions

Mediation Sessions

First Session
The first session is usually two hours and can be as long as six hours, if so desired.

Intake: We will gather information; personal and child information.
Inform: We will go over what the mediation process and the function of a co-parenting plan.

The advantage of a short session is that it gives the parents a good fill for what is needed
and usually a temporary co-parenting plan is put in place. This temporary co-parenting plan
is very import as it gives every one an idea what works and what does not.


Additional Sessions
Parents should prepare for the next scheduled meeting.
Additional sessions can be scheduled for 2 or 4-hours and will be scheduled as needed.
Attorney can be called if not present and  when they are needed they can be invited to attend.




Coordinator Sessions 

These sessions are with one parent.  This happens for varies reasons:
1.  There other parent can be there because he/she lives out of state.
2.  The other parent wants to have his/her say in court and is not interest working things
     out before the court hearing.
3.  The other parent does not realize how important it is to have a good co-parenting plan.
4.  The other parent does not care or just wants to leave it up to the other parent.
