Once you are parents, you are always parents – even if you get divorced. And sometimes figuring out where everyone needs to be -- holidays, vacations, school activities, team practices, visits with grandparents, etc. -- creates tensions between divorced parents which can spill over to the kids as well. So how do you create a family schedule and calendar without re-igniting the tensions that led to divorce in the first place?
At Westfield Mediation, LLC, we help divorced or divorcing families create a parenting calendar that works for the whole family and avoids the arguments that often arise during this process. In many cases, ex-spouses are unable to work together to develop a yearly schedule of children’s activities and family vacations that meets the needs of the kids and both parents. Westfield Mediation, LLC can help eliminate the stress involved in this necessary task, minimizing conflict and improving overall family dynamics.
At Westfield Mediation, LLC, parents can work with trained, impartial professionals to facilitate agreement on scheduling issues. By creating this framework together, the parents argue less, and studies show that it is the conflict that most adversely impacts children of divorce rather than the divorce itself. Moreover, parties are more likely to adhere to a schedule or calendar that they create themselves than one that is imposed upon them by the courts. By providing this calendaring service as part of our divorce mediation practice, Westfield Mediation, LLC strives to address all of our clients’ needs.
