for yourselves and your child(ren). The continuation of your ability to communicate will allow you to develop
a more stable and meaningful relationship with your child(ren). Parents are able to follow through with an agreement
that they have been involved in creating, and therefore, have ownership of it. A new beginning agreed to by two
people promotes harmony and positive ongoing relationships.
involves an impartial (third) person like me chosen by the parties to decide a dispute who agree in advance to abide by an
arbitrator’s award issued after a hearing in which both parties have had an opportunity to be heard.
