When I first started practicing family law and handled family divorce cases, parenting arrangements following a divorce tended to look very similar in each case. The beauty of divorce mediation on Long Island is that together with our Divorce Mediators, we create a parenting plan that works for your family.
What is a Parenting Plan?
This is an overall comprehensive plan which focuses on all issues of parenting. At Divorce Mediation & Family Services, a Long Island divorce mediator will create a working agreement that includes where the children will live and go to school, what the decision making process will be when it comes to the children, scheduling parenting time with mom and dad, vacation times with the children. We also help plan out how and where the holidays will be spent, religious concerns, child care, education concerns, participation in school and after school activities by the children and the parents, relocation and introduction of new relationships. Courts do not take the time to find out what works for you and your family to create plans that are tailored to your lifestyle and family relationship. At divorce mediation centers, we find workable solutions that do fit your lives. As an experienced divorce attorney and divorce mediator on Long Island, our mediator has worked with hundreds of different families, seeing all different scenarios, and can provide numerous options and ideas that would fit your very own situation. Robyn D. Weisman, Esq. has worked in family court on Long Island as a divorce mediator solely working with couples to assist them in creating these parenting plans. It is shown that when agreements are created by the parents themselves with the help of a family mediator or divorce mediator, these agreements tend to be complied with by both parents in the long run.
