Family Custody Mediation

Mediation is a process to assist families in reaching agreements in a positive way with less conflict. This process helps give the decision power to the parents and family members, avoiding going to court and having a judge make orders. In mediation, Chelsea Ewing, M.S. works with the family members to discuss areas of conflict, explore areas of agreement, identify solutions to meet everyone’s needs, and foresee problems for the future.  At a Place to Turn, we offer custody and divorce mediations, and our main goal is the best interest of the children, making sure everyone is heard, and avoiding conflict as much as possible.  Mediations can be a way to make difficult divorces easier and less costly.  The following is an article discussing the benefits of mediation: Why Choose Mediation?
