Orange County Child Visitation Mediation Lawyer
Child visitation is among one of the many details to be worked out in a divorce agreement. Many couples come to the divorce process already agreeing on which parent should retain legal or physical custody. However, many custodial parents also forget that custody does not mean sole ownership. The courts expect both parents to be given an opportunity to be part of their child’s life.
California Divorce Mediation Lawyer For Orange County
Mediation is an excellent way to reduce or avoid the costly emotional disputes that are often part of the custody and visitation discussion in a divorce. Some couples may come to the initial mediation session with a tentative agreement. The agreements will be shared between parties as a starting point for discussion, but usually the spouses find there are many more details to be discussed and thought through.
In many cases, we will present a general “kitchen sink” list of many additional issues the parents must consider, and clients will have an opportunity to discuss the items on the list that are relevant, and which ones can be omitted.
Some of these issues include:
- Relocation concerns
- Business travel and shift work
- Special occasions
- Unexpected interruptions in regular schedule
- Overnight arrangements
- Summer and school break periods
