How Family & Civil Mediation Can Help You

Many factors must be considered when writing up a parenting plan.  Without training, which most parents do not possess, you are likely to forget or ignore vital components.  Lesa Koski Mediation can ensure that no variables are missed and that all points are addressed.  Typical examples of points to consider include the following:

  • Schedules (parents’ and children’s) and details related to living arrangements.
  • Medical and health-related issues.
  • School issues.
  • After-school activities.
  • Religion and faith practices.
  • Holidays, travel, and vacation times.
  • Relationships with other family members.
  • How the divorcing parents will communicate with each other.
  • How changes to the parenting plan will be made.
  • Financial issues.
  • Issues that are not possible to predict, such as those pertaining to pets, responding to kids who experiment with drugs or get in trouble at school, whether or not to give children cell phones and who will pay the bills, etc.
