Family Mediation and Parenting Time Expeditor




Mediation is a flexible approach to resolving disputes. Parties communicate privately with a neutral who assists as they explore the disagreement which has them at odds.  As a neutral third party, the mediator facilitates communication between the parties to promote settlement, and offers an opportunity for self-determination by the parties.

Mediation allows parties an opportunity to settle matters privately.  Meetings can take place in the mediator's office or by other means that are most convenient for the parties.  In many cases, this can help resolve the issues and avoid an often long, expensive, and unpredictable court process.

Family Mediation Issues:  Court-ordered Mediation, Divorce Mediation, Custody and Visitation (Parenting), Scheduling, Grandparenting, Expenses, Reimbursement, Conduct and Respect, Coordination, Property Division, Parenting Time Expeditor, Miscellaneous Issues.


PARENTING TIME DISPUTE RESOLUTION:  Parenting Time Expeditor Services


A Parenting Time Expeditor can be hired to help resolve parenting time disputes that arise under the parenting time (or visitation) order that is in place.  In other words, the parenting time dispute has arisen because one or both parents believe the letter or intent of their court order is not being obeyed or is likely to be violated by the other. Rather than filing a parenting time action in court, the parties engage in mediation with the Expeditor in an attempt to resolve the dispute.  If the mediation is unsuccessful, as often happens, then the Expeditor makes a decision much as the judge would. The parents and child(ren) benefit from the fact that the dispute will be resolved quickly and out of court.





My services emphasize the most important features of productive mediation:

- flexibility in design

- full participation by the parties

- safe and productive mediation environment

- professionalism and independence

- knowledge of the law

- reasonable fees
