Mediation agreement


#1

Dear Charles:

Greetings. You would be crazy to sign this, unless you have recently gotten out of jail, are dangerous to yourself and/or the child, or you are using narcotics or alcohol. If you came to me with this agreement, the first question I would ask you is “what have you done?”

If you simply have not paid, start paying TODAY. Even if it is only $5.00 a week, your gesture is important. Best of luck.

Thank you.

I really think it is crazy also. No I am not a crinimal. I just have an uncontrolable temper, and sometimes I do say and do things I shouldn’t. We had some domestic problems when we were married. I have had angry management classes, however, they didn’t do very good for me.

I am supporting other children by a former marriage who live with me. I do admit I am very strick and sometimes go overboard with my punishments. However, so far I haven’t had DSS on my doorstep.

I guess I will just go to court and see what the judge decides. I am not going to sign anything.

Thanks again for youe advise.

Dear Charles:

Greetings. Based on the information you provided, I recommend that you may want to sign the agreement she is offering. Anger management is a serious issue, especially in parenting children who cannot defend themselves.

My advice is that you accept the agreement on a two (2) year basis and immediately start going to counseling, so that you can vent your anger in a neutral, and safe, atmosphere. While anger is empowering, the consequences are horrible, as I am sure that you know. No one can trust an angry person, and you don’t want to be perpetually known as untrustworthy. Best of luck with your parenting and you continued work on your anger management.

Hi;

I am in the process of trying to agree with my ex. wife in reference to mediation for child custody. I have not been a parent to my child for a long time. My ex. is wanting to begin with supervised visition. I really don’t have a problem with that. I do have a problem when she wants to have these visits on a graduation scale for a year. Then she want give but one night stays for another year. My question; Does this seam like a good agreement to you? The child is still very young. I have not paid anything to keep my child up. I think this will hurt me if we go to court. I really don’t have the funds to go to court or hire an attorney.

Thank you for any help!
