Many separating couples wish to negotiate all issues at once: a parenting plan, child support, spousal support and property division.
These are almost always inter-connected matters. It is understandable for a parent to be reluctant to settle the parenting plan until they know what the support will be. It is often important to resolve such questions as who will keep the house before the parenting plan can be worked out.
In comprehensive mediation, you can safely resolve the financial and parenting aspects of your case at the same time with the same mediator; or you can meet with a social worker mediator to arrive at a good parenting plan and then with one of our lawyer-mediators as part of the same process…. without feeling vulnerable.
No one should enter mediation feeling prejudiced because of the settlements they made in another process that addressed only part of the problem. Comprehensive family mediation allows you to negotiate all the pieces on a “without prejudice basis”, helping you find the best possible outcomes for everyone.
