Divorce mediation assessment promotes co-parenting

The ending of a marriage between two parents often leaves them at odds over how to interact for the benefit of their children. Parents in Massachusetts often have difficulty keeping this focus at the forefront during divorce litigation. In cases where a failed relationship is the reason for the divorce, instead of allegations of child abuse or neglect, parents and children will benefit from honest assessment of failures as a prelude to the mediation process.

A family mediator and social psychologist explains that the divorce mediation assessment involves several questions that will bear strongly on the well-being of children. Questions tend to revolve around communication between the parents. For example, at the end of a marriage, parents need to ask themselves whether they expressed negative behavior or feelings in front of children and how the children reacted.

Along with looking back, divorce mediation can begin with a look forward prior to getting into specifics of child custody, parenting time and visitation plans. Parents must consider the ages of their children and what this means for their relationship in terms of frequency of communication and shared time in public.

Parents often feel distressed at the thought of the effects of divorce on their children. One remedy for this is to enter into divorce mediation for child custody and other issues related directly to children. Despite differences, parents may find common ground in planning a stable future for their children together. Attorneys experienced in family law can help parents navigate the end of a marriage without harming their loved ones.
