We can also help you manage other concerns that you and your family may have.
Families with Special Needs
The Gibson Mediation Group has experience working with families who have children with special needs. We understand the careful consideration that needs to go into Parenting Plans when children have ADD/ADHD, autism, social anxiety, or other special needs.
We help you craft Parenting Plans with the sensitivity and awareness of how to best help you and your children during the divorce transitions.
We also have in-depth knowledge of educational plans and the IEP process, and we are familiar with the public and private schools in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
We are available to consult with you on these matters as needed by you, but the Gibson Mediation Group does not provide any legal advice on these issues.
We work with families that have geographical distances between members (such as siblings and parents) faced with eldercare decisions.
We conduct telephone conferences or Zoom video conferences with family members to help you work through decisions about options for aging parents and relatives. We will discuss who will be responsible for legal, medical, financial, and living arrangement decisions and how they will fulfill those responsibilities.
The goal of this type of mediation is for families to communicate with each other and evaluate the best options for the care of their elderly adult family members. We help you to develop a written plan (that the mediator will draft) to summarize the issues and solutions that you reach in mediation. The Gibson Mediation Group does not provide any legal advice on these issues, but we help guide your family through sensitive matters so you can find the best plan that works for your family without having to go to court to settle disputes.
