If you are having difficulty in agreeing parenting issues you might think about mediation. Mediation is where a third party, the mediator, helps parents/guardians/ family members reach agreement. Mediation encourages all parties to co-operate with each other in working out arrangements concerning their children. Any written agreement can be made a ‘Rule of Court’ which means the written agreement is as legally binding as a court order.
