Within the world of mediation, you as a coParent are required to attend the child custody mediation session mandated by the court. The path of child custody can be confusing, yet a group called Levitt & Quinn Family Law Center offers insight to prepare you for the journey.
The nonprofit family law center explained the ins and outs of mediation and also lists free mediation classes. The classes, online on their site, let you know what lies ahead in your mandatory mediation session.
During the mediation process, you may resolve conflict and reach decisions with the other parent. That is the goal. If not, then a judge will make decisions for you in a court hearing.
