Children. Our future. Their strength, their adaptability, their ability to cope with the pending issue of divorce will depend largely on the parents. Old-school thinking once held that it was the divorce itself that caused children to acquire depression, have difficulties in school, and get in trouble with the law. Research has now shown that conflict, and not divorce, is the most crucial factor in influencing a child’s post-divorce adjustment. And we are there to help you make decisions that will keep any future conflict to a minimum.
Mediation offers all of those involved — mom, dad, and the children — opportunities for success that cannot be provided in a more efficient manner. If you were to be asked the question, “Who knows what is best for your children?”, your reply would most likely be, “Well, I do!” So why let a judge whom you have known eight hours determine the fate of your children? After all, you know what is best. Mediation lets you and your spouse make the decisions that are best for your children.
Carolina Divorce Mediators, LLC was founded on children’s rights and needs. Your mediator will task you to stay focused on your children while helping you carefully consider the impact of any decisions that you might be considering.
The bottom line is that neither of you should be worried about what is going on at your ex-spouse’s home while the children are there.
