There are a few ways to resolve your child custody case. Traditionally parents go to court and ask a stranger to order them to parent their child a certain way. The judge has never sat down and had a normal conversation with the parents about how the parents think the child should be raised, and have never met the child. Day after day, judges tell parents to settle these cases themselves. At least a hundred times, I have heard judges ask parents why they prefer a stranger to tell them what is best for their kids rather than the very parents who love and know their children more than anyone else.
However, when parents of a child want what is best for their child based on the parents’ values, concerns and interests, they avoid court at all costs. Mediators, collaborative lawyers and child specialists can help you resolve your custody disputes without going to court as long as both parents are willing to communicate and compromise.
