Child Custody Mediation
Idaho law requires mediation for disputes regarding child custody and visitation. During mediation, a neutral third party works with both parents to create an agreement that benefits everyone. It is important to note that the mediator will make recommendations and work with you to come to an amicable resolution but they will not render decisions.
A mediator can help to:
- Identify the mutual wishes of the parents
- Determine the wishes of the child
- Consider parental stability
- Evaluate the home environments of each parent
The process of mediation is effective in helping divorcing couples work toward a mutually agreeable resolution. Our child custody and visitation lawyer in Boise will explain what to expect, help identify your goals, and coach you on how to reach them. We use our more than two decades of experience to discern if the agreement proposed in mediation is a beneficial option for each client’s situation.

The court will ultimately make decisions based on the child’s best interests. We provide superior legal counsel to guide you through the process.
