Mediation for Guardianship Matters in Pasadena - (888) 844-9530
The care and raising of a child is one of the most important duties that exists. Understandably, the individuals involved in a guardianship dispute will likely have strong feelings and opinions about how the child should be raised. These kinds of conversations and disagreements are often repeated and ongoing as the child grows.
A legal guardian is someone who is not the parent of the child, but who has full custody rights for that child. A guardian has the same rights that a parent would, and is held responsible for the well-being of the child. Maybe you are a parent, but difficult life circumstances led to another person gaining guardianship over your child. It is understandable that you might have concerns or wishes regarding your child’s upbringing, but are facing disagreement with the guardian. Alternatively, you may be on the other end: you may be the legal guardian, but are facing conflict with the child's parent or parents.
Either way, you could greatly benefit from turning to an experienced family law mediator. Instead of increasing tension by resorting to anger, bitterness, or aggressive tactics, you should turn to a skilled professional who can help you sort through this complicated issue. As with custody battles that take place during divorce, exposing a child to conflict and instability during a guardianship disagreement can be damaging, to say the least. Mediation lets you avoid such problems.
