Mediation Newcastle upon Tyne Dispute Resolution for Child Custody

Who is awarded legal custody of the kids?

English law does not recognise the concept of custody. Because your children have a right to see both of you, both in court and in mediation Newcastle, you as parents will be asked to come up with a plan for how you will divide your time with them.

In mediation Newcastle upon Tyne we look at how to make arrangements for your children with you, the parents. For example, you and your partner may agree on the amount of time your kids spend with each of you, as well as how they spend their school vacations, vacations to other countries, birthdays, and religious holidays. There are times when the conversation is difficult to have, and mediation Newcastle can help.

We’ll sit down with you and find out what’s preventing you from making plans. Changes in communication, whether verbal or textual, can make or break an arrangement. Likewise, new partners may bring new challenges to an arrangement that was previously working well.

It’s common for parents to believe that a court order is the only option for resolving disagreements between them and their children. This has been disproven time and time again through mediation Newcastle. To keep the focus on your children’s well-being, we can assist and support you during these difficult conversations.

Considering children during divorce mediation Newcastle can be a challenge for many married couples, and couples in same-sex civil partnerships may also have children to consider.

Encouraging mediation Newcastle upon Tyne amongst children

We believe that if children are involved in the mediation Newcastle upon Tyne process, such as deciding their future living arrangements after a divorce, it makes sense to include them in the discussions.

Divorce mediators may benefit from talking to your children about their concerns and their preferred living arrangements, even if you don’t want them to be present in every meeting.

Your family mediator can speak to your children instead of you if they don’t feel comfortable talking to their parents about this issue on their own.
