What is Child Mediation?

Child mediation is a voluntary, confidential process where a neutral third party, known as a mediator, assists parents in discussing their concerns, identifying solutions, and reaching a mutually acceptable agreement regarding their children’s future. This method of resolution emphasizes cooperation, communication, and compromise, putting the needs and welfare of the children at the forefront.


The Mediation Process

The mediation process generally involves the following steps:

Initial Meeting

The mediator meets with both parties to explain the process, establish ground rules, and identify the issues to be discussed.


The mediator facilitates communication between the parties, helping them articulate their concerns and perspectives.


The mediator helps the parties explore different options and negotiate a mutually acceptable solution.


Once an agreement is reached, the mediator drafts it in writing for review and approval by both parties and their attorneys.
