Pretty much anything!
So long as it is able to be done and lawful, your parenting agreement is YOURS – whatever you agree to can be put in the agreement.
Here are some examples:
My solicitor said he can better a better result than a mediator – more time with my kids.Yes, maybe s/he can. How much will that cost you in dollars, time and stress?
Mediation will cost you a small fraction of the cost of the legal process, it can take as little as a week, and, although it is not an easy thing to do, it’s nowhere near as stressful as going through the legal process.
You can mediate even if you have a lawyer and a court date. Let your lawyer know you are looking into mediation. I will ask you if you have a lawyer.
Separated parents are obliged to attempt mediation before they can apply to have a case heard in court for parenting issues. You don’t need to attempt mediation if you want to file in court for financial / property issues.
Your lawyer will fight to get you the best deal, that’s for sure, because that’s what you pay them to do. A mediator facilitates agreements between parents, so you get what you and the other parent can agree to with the help of a mediator.
