Considering Your Children First: Child Custody Mediation

Father-daughterDo you want to carefully craft how you will tell your children about your separation and divorce? Do you want to develop a co-parenting plan that will not put your children in the middle? Do you want to learn about the elements that make shared custody work well?

Choose mediation.

I am Patricia Wozniak Henk, one of the only attorneys in Allegheny County focused on family law mediation and, above all, a strong advocate for children. When you work with me, your children will always be front-and-center. They may not be in the room, but I will tell parents, "I have eyes, hearts and souls that are not at this table — but they are here through my voice and need to be considered." I will also help you understand how various choices can affect your children's development so that you are able to make decisions in their best interests.

Offering You Options For Your Child Custody Case

Because everyone's situation is unique, mediation is more of an art than a science. Through mediation, you may be able to come to an agreement you never thought possible — one that makes it easier for you and the other parent to work together in the future.
