Parents who have been raising children together may decide to call it quits and establish separate residences.  At that point they face a wide range of issues relating to how they will co-parent going forward.  Among those topics are:  
  • Making significant decisions affecting the children.
  • Dividing parenting time with the children.
  • Remaining present in their children's lives.
  • Addressing financial aspects of raising their children
  • Helping parents understand the value of a detailed parenting plan

Family and divorce mediators are frequently called upon to assist parents whose marriage or relationship is ending in developing a workable and flexible parenting plan.  Three experienced family and divorce mediators will share their ideas and tips on structuring effective parenting plans at the next RI Mediators Association workshop.
