IN FAQs/Mediation Issues

Aside from the specific parenting-time schedule upon which you will agree, there are numerous parenting issues that may be appropriate to address in your mediated agreement. To ensure that you don’t leave out any essential issues, make a list prior to mediation of the parenting issues you want to address. Some examples that may apply to you include:

  • How parenting time pick-ups and drop-offs will be handled.
  • How holidays and extended school breaks will be divided.
  • School-related issues, such as communication relating to homework, where the kids will attend school, and communication of school activities.
  • Participation in extracurricular activities.
  • Accommodating time spent with extended family.
  • Religious upbringing.
  • Sharing of clothing and personal belongings.
  • Responsibility for expenses such as school-books, school lunches, etc.

  • Accommodating time spent with extended family.
  • Religious upbringing.
  • Sharing of clothing and personal belongings.
  • Responsibility for expenses such as school-books, school lunches, etc.

In your particular case, it may not make sense to address some of these specific issues in your written agreement. However, it always makes sense to raise issues about which you are concerned so that the family law mediator, counsel, and both parties can fully address and make decisions about anything that might arise.
