Helpful information about the Child Custody and Visitation Mediation Program. About In accordance with North Carolina General Statute 50-13.1, all cases involving contested custody and visitation issues of minor children will be sent to the Custody Mediation and Visitation Program before or concurrent with the setting of the matter for hearing, unless the court waives mediation. Mediation is a chance for parents to discuss how they will take care of their children after they divorce or separate.

The ultimate goal of mediation is to help parents reach an agreement about how to care for their children. Biological parents have a right to seek child visitation or child custody. This is true regardless of whether the child’s parents were married when the child was born.

Like other child. If the parents agree, then they may also be able to resolve a custody or visitation order in mediation. Sometimes, one parent may wish to modify an existing child custody or visitation order. Some reasons you may want to modify a child custody or visitation order include, but are not limited to: One parent moving out of stat.

There are several important steps you should take before you start child custody mediation: Consider getting legal advice from an attorney: It’s best to walk into mediation with a solid understanding of your custody rights and responsibilities. Write out detailed daily schedules for you and your child. Prepare your own custody and visitation proposal.

Custody and visitation matters are often heard together within the same hearing, but a visitation petition may also be filed as a separate matter. Other family members, such as grandparents or siblings, may also file a petition seeking an order. You will also learn about the law in custody and visitation cases and get information on enforcing an existing order.

Custody Mediation Mediation, or child custody recommending counseling in many courts, is mandatory in all custody. Mandatory Child Custody Recommending Counseling In any dissolution matter regarding child custody and visitation where there is a dispute, (Family Code section §3170) mandates that the case be set for child custody recommending counseling prior to the court hearing. If you cannot agree, the judge will send you to mediation and a mediator from Family Court Services or another court-related program will help you.

If you still cannot agree, you and the other parent will meet. When to use child custody (parenting) mediation? When parents divorce or separate, they need to decide how their children will be cared for and where they will live or spend time.

These issues can be settled in child custody (parenting) mediation.

  • Nice Video! Apologies for chiming in, I would appreciate your thoughts. Have you ever tried Taparton Returning Love Takeover (do a google search)? It is a good exclusive product for learning how to stop divorce minus the normal expense. Ive heard some awesome things about it and my GF finally got amazing success with it.

  • Unfortunately washington state is backwards compared to forty percent of the USA that usually gives parents 50/50 parenting time regardless of gender. Washington is a pro mom state and unfortunately both of us are up to 60k in legal fees between me (petitioner) and the respondent (their mom). Why is it that Washington is backwards? It is because the whole system of family court and lawyers make money off of conflict and not even supporting LAWS of the state itself that mandate 50/50 such as RCW 26.16.125!!! It is a sham! And family court destroys families. “Best interest of the kids” is absolute BS. Our lawyers are dragging it out 6 months until court and the ONLY thing is the parenting plan/time. We both will pay 20k each for court, amounting to a 100k Divorce. Do either of us do meth? No. Cps? No. It’s only because one party disagrees w parenting time. ( giving the kids one more night a week w their dad). More overnights w dad means more bonding, less drugs alcohol, premarital sex truancy, Juvi involvement as a kid, but what. They want to drag it all the way to court instead of the court upholding state law giving 50/50 at the start!! Lawyers formulate a plan to drag it out imho! There have been new bills submitted in wa state to demand the courts to prove with evidence why not giving a parent parenting time (50/50) IS NOT in the best interest of the children. They’ve all been shot down by bar associations!!! A fucking joke!

  • I ve seen every video of you regarding contested child custody, you are ROCKING the world of families who work hard for the dollars. Some of your videos make me cry. Thanks so much for your publication.

  • How do you deal with a narcissist? How do you get a narcissist to work with the other parent? I also think it is just awful for the children to be shuffled every few days from here to there.

  • Here, in California, it is near IMPOSSIBLE for a father to win custody of his child. You can have all the evidence to prove that the mother is “unfit” to take care of the child. The courts always take the mothers side. I know that for a fact… I’ve been fighting custody for my daughter for over two years and have not made any progress.

  • Once again, the man is pleading with the judge, and it gets turned into, he only cares about himself, the judge apparently isn’t intelligent enough to figure out what’s best for the child and see past all the drama…The judge is more concerned with the state making kickbacks off the father’s paycheck. That judge is lucky that guy is civil boy, and doesn’t resort to his 2nd amendment right to fight off these professional extortionists. See, he has shared custody but he still has to pay support so work is super important to him, or he’ll go to Jail, and lose Everything. Mother’s don’t have that risk, so its not even on their mind. Now what would be fair, is if there was an account, and both parents had to pay into that account for the child, but the bias on the man. That’s great, the court can’t see the bias, ha ha. Men are completely screwed. If the court cared about the welfare of that child, they wouldn’t award it to the parent who cant afford the child and take money from the one who can.

  • Great info here. Would you have any further information or have done a case where the father wants more time with the children? My spouse wants to do an equal shared parenting schedule but his ex wife refuses. She says it would confuse and be difficult for their son to adjust. We find this strange because he already comes over due to standard visitation. Its been a whirlwind of other difficulties since we’ve been together when it comes to having a relationship with his son, now 6. Any tips on what to prepare for when we go to modify the schedule and relationship; have Joint physical custody?

  • do u think is god to start..his visitacions. after..3 yrs that he left his kids. to see is mistress t whole weekend.x 2yrsand half.t mistress has 3 kids..and she him my exhusband..that it was my husband and that.time..sge said almost 15yrold cuold be yuor..or her husband. she.knows..the truth..she wanba meet went..5and half hrs drive..tosee.her..DNA..WAD NEVER DONE..THEY JUS BECOME.LOVERS…HE LETF T HSE..2MONTHS.

  • I’m in Japan. My wife (Canadian)abducted my three kids,twin boys 5 years,daughter 9 years in April 2018.I’ve NOT been with my children since.I just got mediation papers in the post two weeks ago.From what I understand the Japanese family courts will give my wife full custody for the best interests of the children,and law experts said I will NEVER have rights to see the Kids again.
    Please!! What can I do?

  • I believe that you are forgetting to discuss the legal elements of Joint Legal and Joint Physical Custody. These are extremely important issues in the legal system and once either side surrenders it is next to impossible to get back. Sadly your videos miss alot of the injustice being done in the courts especially when dealing with mental health.

  • Wendy, all the info you provide is good but, what about fathers getting ready to go to revise the divorce decree and want equal parenting time?

  • I find that this attitude that we are all the same is why the courts and solicitors do not get that the other parent is willing to do anything and everything for you not to have contact. At my mediation, ex wife said that I had abused the children. Mediation over. I was not told until later, and was interview by social services. Strangely SS although asked me to leave home then let me see them unsupervised. All allegations stopped after leaving the home to deprive me of it. I now own half anyway so it did not work.
