Mediation is an excellent tool for global families when that family spans multiple countries and legal systems. Global families tend to have complex situations that need creative solutions. Many courts do not have the tools or ability to craft a tailor-made solution for global families, and many legal systems do not have the ability to consider the unique situations in which many global families find themselves (frequent moves, international travel, passports, immigration, etc.) Many families have found a court order, after a several day trial, to be inadequate to address the family’s situation and future needs. Mediation can provide the space to share concerns, consider creative options, and involve other people and professionals to reach a more sustainable plan for your family in the years to come.
