Sometimes disagreements happen between people who are trying to co-parent children. This can apply to married parents, divorced parents or really any type of family circumstance. Issues may include:
- parenting time schedules, holidays, vacations, calendar management
- financial issues about who pays for what
- differences in discipline and parenting styles
- school issues
- medical issues
- communication methods
- and many other co-parenting topics
Note that CRC does not provide divorce mediation, but we do provide services to help parents work out a way to co-parent their children after a separation or divorce, keeping the children’s best interests in mind.
Mediation is a guided process where parties come together to work out a solution and keep control over the outcome. Trained mediators provide a setting where reaching agreement is possible and all participants have the opportunity to voice their concerns.
The mediation process respects the rights of all involved. It is a confidential and voluntary process.
