How mediation can help parents determine responsibilities

Splitting up the parenting responsibilities during your divorce in Ohio may be one of the most difficult aspects of the entire separation. Many parents find that mediation can make the process simpler and allow you to have more control over the final designations for custody and parenting time. We at the Law Office of Kristen L. Campbell can help you discover the benefits of this alternative to a court-mandated custody arrangement. 

According to Findlaw, there are several reasons why mediation can be more beneficial for parents seeking a divorce. One of the biggest benefits is the financial savings. Court cases can be extremely expensive, requiring payment for many different actions. These filings also often take more time, as much as several months to one year, while mediations can be completed in a fraction of the time. 

Mediations are completed by professionals who have training and experience helping uncooperative couples negotiate and compromise. They are also neutral and will not favor either of you, allowing a fair agreement to be reached.

By using a mediator, you can also have more say in the arrangement of your child's schedule. While a judge may simply order you to split parenting time equally, you and your spouse may be able to work with a mediator to determine what the best scenario for your family would be. Constant shuffling between houses is often hard on the child, but you may be able to determine a less stressful schedule during mediation.
