The benefits of mediation when parenting time is at issue

For many people, mediation may be a word they have heard before or a concept they are vaguely familiar with; however, most people may not have engaged in a formal mediation.  Mediation is a wonderful alternative to litigation that allows parties to take control of the outcome of their case.  Mediation involves using a neutral third-party - a mediator - in order to reach an agreement on contested issues.
