Advantages of mediation

Children are best served when parents maintain a cordial relationship. Through the structured process of mediation, couples can often set aside hostility and agree on key decisions affecting their children. Mediation can be a highly effective tool for parents to preserve their children’s well-being and the stability of their lives during the turbulent process of divorce. Mediation takes some of the stress out of child custody conflicts and puts important child-rearing decisions in the hands of the parents rather than the court. It also presents a forum for creating fair child support plans that allow both parents to share in the financial obligations of raising their children. Ms. Delgado has meticulously developed mediation strategies that carefully guide the negotiating process toward healthy resolution.

Supporting litigation

In some cases, litigation is necessary to protect a child’s best interests. When one parent refuses to compromise or expresses hostility toward the other parent, negotiations fail. Sometimes a parent may even pose a danger to the child’s well-being  In these cases, litigation is the most appropriate forum for establishing parental rights. Ms. Delgado’s methodical approach to litigation enables you to feel confident that your children are protected and your parental rights are secure.
