Mediation is a private dispute resolution forum that is very different from the public courtroom in that it gives the parties much better control of their own case with the help of a neutral third party mediator than the parties would have when litigating. Thus, the mediator is a neutral facilitator, who does not represent either party or work as the lawyer for either party in a dispute. The role of the mediator is to help facilitate the parties reaching their own agreement through negotiation and compromise.Learn More
Mediation may be used at any point in time: before a lawsuit is filed, as an alternative to trial, or even when a case is on appeal. Because the goal of mediation is to reach a resolution that is acceptable to both parties and is personalized to meet those parties’ particular needs, it is often used in divorce and family cases.Learn More

The purpose of the custody agreement is to reach an understanding on how to raise and care for the child with both parents sharing in the responsibilities and maintaining involvement in the day-to-day life of the child.
