To enable an understanding of the family law secretaries application of the law focus is drawn upon the tools and terms of reference in their work with family mediation. To make the study more specifik the discussion is centered around following themes; parents cooperation, the child's will and alternating housing. The study results in an understanding in witch the family law secretaries application of the law is seen as practised within a finite discource. Within the discource parental cooperation is worded as the fundamental aim of family mediation practice. Parental cooperation becomes both the means and the aim to reach the discoursive desired family situation. The will of the child and alternating housing is handled in relation to parental cooperation and conflict, rather than in relation to the best interest of the child. This said with an discoursive understanding of the best interest of the child primarily as having cooperating parents. (Less)
