Immigration and International Travel Concerns in Mediation
Mediator Tye Bourdony of Cfmediationcenter.com with Mac and Natalia of OlowskaPierre.com on this YouTube episode to bring closer the issues which may arise in mediation when the cross-border topics are at stake: immigration status, international relocation, passports, international travel so as to decide on time share, parenting plans and court orders as necessary. Sometimes a party can evoke the immigration status of the other party in mediation – and this should not be a concern as it does not give leverage to the party evoking it, for mediation is confidential. The parties should definitely try to discuss their issues in mediation before seeking court decision in any of such cases and we discuss why it is so. And what if child support arrears exist – can it influence international travel possibilities of a parent owing the child support?
