Mediate the Move

When George and Ann decided to file for divorce, they were able to sit down at the dining room table and decide how their separation would take place. Division of property and debt was a relatively easy matter. Spousal support was not an issue. Both held responsible, well-paying positions. Their daughter, Lynn, was their most important focus. She was in middle school, doing better than average work, and had many friends in the community. George and Ann agreed that Lynn would live primarily with Ann and that George’s contact would be frequent. George was in retail sales, but didn’t want to be a weekend warrior. They agreed to every other weekend plus whatever additional time George requested, including every Wednesday evening, one half of the usual holidays, and one half of the summer.
