Family Mediation

Family Mediation is a voluntary process by which separating couples sit together and design a financial settlement or parenting plan with the help of a specially-trained neutral facilitator.

With the mediator’s assistance, couples engage in a constructive discussion focusing on their underlying interests and concerns, leading to a legal separation agreement while avoiding unnecessary conflict.

Mediation is an alternative to going to court or having the lawyers of separating spouses negotiate an agreement. Its purpose is to assist spouses to resolve their differences and design their own solutions to their unique problems.
