  • The Judge’s video explained that the court is not the place to work through emotional issues and that you do not necessarily have to go to court.
  • Mediation is a way to sort out and make agreements regarding the roles of both parents after separation and that is one alternative to court that you can consider.
  • To learn more about resolving legal issues outside of court and options that are available to you, read the Parenting After Separation Handbook.
