“My own personal experience has shown us there is a better way to resolve the parenting plan conflicts of divorce than through the legal system where decisions are made for us and money is wasted.”
A parenting plan is either assigned by the courts or mutually agreed upon by the parents. I believe that the latter is better for your family and your children during divorce. That’s why I am dedicated to helping families create a child centered parenting plan that works for their family.
Life changes throughout the year, and the changing needs of your children may prompt parents to change to their parenting plan. Some examples are:
- A change in work schedule or employment
- More age-appropriate schedules for growing children
- A child’s changing needs
- A parent moving or relocating
- Remarriage of either or both parents
- Changing schools or school schedules
Divorce Mediation with a certified mediator will guide you through a facilitative process to create a child centered parenting plan. Allowing you to express your concerns, feelings and ideas to change your parenting plan in a way that works best for your family, especially your children.

- Communicate openly to the other parent
- Use examples and ask the other parent if they have noticed related events
