I went through mediation in May. We went into the courthouse, met in a room off the side of the court room. My ex on one side of the table, me on the other side, and the mediator between us. We discussed the issue of custody first and the mediator made his suggestions. The judge in this county does not allow 50/50 shared custody, nor does he give sole custody unless there is abuse. We assigned me as the primary caregiver and my ex got visitation.

We then moved onto a visitation schedule which took the longest amount of time. Then we moved onto holidays, restrictions, travel, and other things. The mediator had it written out, we signed it, and the judge signed it.
