One of the most challenging aspects of a divorce is establishing a parenting plan. It's difficult enough for a happily married couple to handle all of the details involved with raising children, and this challenge is increased significantly in the context of divorce and two separate households. The visitation schedule will impact you and your children for years to come, so it is important to work with an experienced lawyer who can help you through the process and protect your children's rights.

At Kathleen K. Reeves & Associates, we have more than 30 years of experience handling child-related divorce issues for clients in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties, including Pleasanton, Livermore and Dublin. Attorney Kathleen Reeves is a certified mediator and skilled negotiator who works to establish personally tailored visitation plans in the most efficient, amicable manner possible.

Amicable, Efficient Solutions

Although visitation and other divorce-related matters have been resolved through courtroom litigation, divorcing parties are using mediation and other alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods for establishing parenting plans.

At Kathleen K. Reeves & Associates, we help clients work together to create parenting plans that are:

  • Amenable to both parents: One of the most difficult aspects of visitation and other divorce negotiations is getting two parties on the brink of a divorce to agree. This is especially true regarding the complexities involved with creating a visitation schedule. As a certified mediator, Ms. Reeves helps all parties see the picture and come to agreement.
  • Personally tailored: One of the most significant benefits of avoiding the courtroom is that the parties involved can create a plan that is tailored to their unique needs and schedules rather than having a judge make these important determinations.
  • In the best interests of the children: Even if both parents agree to a visitation schedule, the court will not approve it if it does not appear to be in the best interests of the children. We have the knowledge and experience to help you create a visitation schedule that will work for you, protect your children's future and obtain approval from the courts.

"Although I am prepared to fight for your rights in litigation, this should be the last resort. Through simple negotiation and civilized discussions, I am able to help clients create an effective parenting plan together efficiently and amicably. This is almost always a better way."
