What is Child Guardianship Mediation?
Child guardianship mediation is a process where both parties involved in a dispute over the guardianship of a child can come to a mutual agreement. This process usually involves a mediator, or an independent third party, who is trained to facilitate a negotiation between the opposing parties. The mediator listens to the arguments of both parties and helps them to reach a mutually beneficial solution. This process is intended to provide a fair and just resolution to the dispute, and is often preferred to more adversarial methods such as litigation as it allows both parties to have a voice in the outcome of the case.
How Does Child Guardianship Mediation Work?
At Rhino Mediation, our experienced mediators are dedicated to facilitating the child guardianship mediation process. The mediator will first meet with both parties to discuss the issues at hand and understand the positions of each party. This allows the mediator to gain an understanding of the situation and the desired outcome of each party. Once the mediator has a clear understanding of the dispute, they will be able to help both parties come to an agreement that meets the needs of both parties. The mediator will guide both parties through the negotiation process, provide advice and feedback, and ensure that the discussion remains productive and stays on track.
