These are often among the most emotionally difficult cases in family law. I think all parties want an experienced and sensitive mediator to facilitate a process as they sort through the details and arrive at the best outcome.
None of these cases are easy. I believe that parents and grandparents in these cases often do better with a skilled mediator helping them making the decisions for their children rather than bringing in dueling “expert” child psychologists to tell them what to do.
On the other hand, I have been appointed by the Courts to advocate for young children and have worked closely with expert family counselors and child psychologists to help divorcing parents work together to come up with a supportive parenting plan.
