Parenting agreements and child custody in California

It is sometimes possible for parents going through a child custody case to negotiate an agreement between one another regarding the parenting of their child. Courts generally view custody cases with the idea that it is in the child's best interests to have ongoing contact with both parents in order to develop and continue healthy relationships. When the parents are able to negotiate an agreement, judges generally will grant the agreement and make it an order of the court.

Divorce mediation

Divorce mediation is a beneficial alternative to resolving a divorce without taking the matter to court. Mediation is considered an informal resolution, and any settlement reached must be approved by a judge, but it is often much easier for couples to handle the process in this manner. Judges often encourage spouses to attempt mediation before taking the matter to court. It is worthwhile for California couples to seriously consider mediation as the method of settling their divorce, especially if they are parents.

Mediation in California divorce cases

Many people who are divorcing in California may find it advantageous to go through mediation for child custody and other matters instead of going through a protracted court process. Mediation provides several advantages, including cost-effectiveness and the ability to resolve issues more quickly than the often lengthy court process.
