The following issues can be solved through family mediation:
How does family mediation work?
You and your (ex) partner voluntarily decide to negotiate your separation and parenting plan in good faith.
A mediator possessing a law degree will meet individually with each of you to determine whether your case is suitable for mediation (Screening for Domestic Violence and Power Imbalances will be conducted to ensure a fair process – if there was/is violence or power imbalance, for example, your case may not be fitted for mediation). All these conversations are confidential.
If your case is suitable for mediation, the neutral professional will meet with you and your ex-partner for joint or separate sessions to facilitate discussions about reaching a mutually satisfying agreement.
All these conversations are confidential and either of you can terminate the mediation process at any time if you feel it doesn’t meet your needs.
It’s strongly recommended that you and your former-partner obtain independent legal advice before, during and after the mediation process.
These agreements are efficient, cost effective, legally binding and enforceable.
