Parental Responsibility is an important issue for parents who are no longer having the day to day contact with their children. A father may feel rejected where his name has not been registered on his child’s birth certificate and he is having limited or no contact.
This issue can be addressed in mediation. As Mediators we like to work with parents so that there is a better understanding of what is expected of them when they undertake the fun and responsibility of parenting.
We have found that where this is shared between two caring parents, and the responsibility is not just given lip service, it can ease the situation for both parents, and the outcome is a win/win for all parties including the children.
