CAN A NEGOTIATED SOLUTION BE BEST RE RELOCATION?

Yes, sometimes, it may be preferable to try and negotiate a fair solution, if mediation seems likely or inevitable, especially if the professional reports submitted to court seem clearly in favour of this. A thoroughly negotiated solution can save time, money and emotions later, and may result in a better option than letting the judge set the conditions. A negotiated solution is likely to be more detailed and planned than a court judgment, and may prevent the need for costly appeals.

A negotiated solution is signed by the parties and approved by the court and incorporated into a judgment.
