After a parenting plan has been put in place by a Judge, there are certain steps that need to be followed if one of the parties desires to move more than fifty (50) miles away or out of the state.

Mediation is way to settle your case without rolling the dice and leaving it up to the judge. A mediator will guide you through this process, helping each party clarify the issues, consider the options, and reach a workable agreement that fits everyone's needs. This is not court, and the mediator does not decide your case, but facilitates each party to reach a consensus.
