Do you wish to resolve your family law matter without going to court?
Mediation gives you the opportunity to resolve you family law issues without the need for expensive litigation.
What is Mediation?
The vast majority of disputes, including legal disputes, are resolved by negotiation between the parties involved. One method to negotiate a solution to a dispute is to engage a mediator who will ensure that each party puts his/her side of the story and encourages parties to come up with a solution, an outcome.
One definition, among many, of mediation is:
Mediation is a process in which the participants, with the support of the mediator, identify issues, develop options, consider alternatives and make decisions about future actions and outcomes. The mediator acts as a third party to support participants to reach their own decision. – Mediator Standards Board (MSB)
