You and your soon-to-be-ex-spouse have disagreements about how you’d like to raise your children, which is completely normal. Getting a divorce makes it more complicated to make your wishes known and to keep lines of communication open, though. Additionally, you know that your spouse is angry about the divorce and tends to overreact to when conflicts happen.
In your case, all you want to do is to put together a parenting plan that guides you both, so that you can reduce the number of conflicts you have in the future. Trying to talk through this on your own hasn’t been possible, but could mediation help?
As parents, your primary goal is to raise your children well. Mediation can help you sit down and hash out the details of how you’d like to raise your children and what you expect of the other parent. There is a third-party mediator present, and you both may bring an attorney to the meeting.
With others present during your discussion, you can feel more confident that there won’t be a major breakdown in communication. If there is, the mediator is there to guide you and to get the conversation started again. With others around, there is also less chance of having a major fight, since the mediator, and your attorneys, may step in and explain when it’s time to take a break or if something has been misunderstood.
With conflict, the way forward is to improve communication. Mediation is just one way that you can improve yours with your ex-spouse.
I’ve known Mr. Gets for many years. He is smart, receptive and is a good listener. He cares about each case he works on and is a trusted professional. I highly recommend him.

Robert Getz provided stellar representation in my case. From the first meeting where he outlined the law and along the way as he updated me on the status of my case and how the law and the facts were on my side. It was easy to see I had the best attorney in the case as the opposing attorney was not even in his league. His preparation of documents, legal strategies and the knowledge of the law and procedure made the other side look like amateurs. Locking in the best appellate attorney for me on the appeal was a very wise move as well. The judge in my case made it a point to affirm the quality representation Robert Getz provided. I highly recommend Robert Getz, Attorney at Law. Charmaine

Robert Getz is a standup guy; straightforward; he's fair and honest. Robert gives advise to his clients as if he were in your shoes. He has the best interest of his clients in mind and goes to bat to ensure things are carried out in the most favorable manner. He is professional and has the respect of Snohomish County court commissioners, judges, and his legal peers alike. I would recommend Robert Gertz to anyone needing family law assistance.
