If you share children and have made the very difficult decision to divorce, it is important to understand that the lives of you and your former spouse will forever be intricately connected because of your kids. Signing your divorce papers may be the official end to your marriage, but it is just the beginning of a new phase of your relationship – co-parenting. Co-parenting is the act of sharing all of the duties of parenting your children, after a couple has separated or divorced. Co-parenting can last for many years, depending on the age of your children and, as you might expect, can be complicated as you and your former spouse may not always agree on major issues that arise. Lisa Kallemeyn of Kallemeyn & Kallemeyn can help you and your former spouse navigate these complex issues after divorce with post-divorce mediation services.
Solve Conflict after Divorce with Mediation Services
The court system cannot possibly litigate all conflicts between former spouses and co-parents. Mediation is a tool that can be used to help you and your former spouse find areas of compromise when it comes to issues like making decisions about your children’s education, medical care, and custody arrangements. Post-divorce mediation can also help you and your spouse resolve all types of conflict including issues of differing parenting styles, and how to handle the addition of stepparents. A mediator does not make decisions for you – but facilitates a positive and productive discussion so that you and your former spouse can find your own solutions. You and your former spouse know your family and your needs best, so you are in the best possible position to find resolution, rather than leaving it in the hands of the courts.
