I have mediation this evening with the father of my kids. I typed up things i want. and i searched online for a list of things to mediate, but couldnt find anything. i have sole custody of my oldest and the hearing for custody of my youngest is in a few months. and he has supervised visitation for my oldest. which, he visits them both at the same time, just for the youngest its not court ordered yet. so, if anyone has any suggestions of things i can bring up at mediation, please let me know...

Well, what do you want to come out of the mediation visit?

Have you had any discussions with the mediator by phone in advance of this visit?

It's a pity you haven't talked more to her: if there's a next time, that'd be ideal.

I'd just note all of those things that you want, if you haven't already, as well as any changes you might want in the current custody agreements.

Ultimately, I have to tel you that custody mediation is way outside our scope here at Scarleteen, so you're probably better off consulting someone with legal expertise around mediation.
