Determining child custody and parenting time in a litigated divorce.
- You must first attend court-ordered mediation at the court house.
- If mediation is successful, the court-appointed mediator will draft a document resolving the issues.
- In the event they are unsuccessful, the parties return to the judge who will conduct a custody evaluation, examining the circumstances, determining the best interest of the children.
- Each party has the right to hire a rebuttal expert and go through another custody evaluation if recommendations are not accepted.
