• Divorce and Custody Mediation

Divorce & Custody Mediation

Whether it is a divorce or paternity case, the most important element is the PARENTING PLAN. The parenting plan is part of your divorce or paternity proceedings: if you don’t create one yourself, the court will do it for you. And you don’t want that.

The main focus of the parenting plan isn’t the parents – it’s the children

Since 2004, Brook Olsen has helped high-conflict couples create parenting plans that focus on the child’s needs while working with the schedules and needs of each parent.

During custody mediation sessions, Brook helps you collaborate with the other parent to reach agreement on a plan together. Areas of discussion include each parent’s schedules, vacations, living arrangements, co-parenting, parenting time rotations, expenses, and child support. Brook makes sure that the plan is complete so there are no questions in family court, which needs assurance that your parenting plan is in the best interest of your children.  

Going into mediation with another mediator? Meeting with your attorney?

Prior to going into mediation with another mediator or meeting with an attorney, it’s a good idea to lay out exactly what you want in a parenting plan. Brook works with you to build a plan that articulates exactly what you want, and helps you set boundaries to avoid the chaos of a high-conflict custody battle.

Parenting Coordinator

Stop the arguments and set boundaries!

Parenting plans are supposed to clearly lay out custody issues and parental responsibilities: if your court-ordered or mediator-brokered plan is causing conflict and confusion, you need a Parenting Coordinator to help you stop the arguments and set boundaries.

With Brook’s help, you and your ex can get more clarity about the intent of your parenting plan, and resolve outstanding disputes through a Parenting Coordination agreement.
