Mediation PDF Print

Family Mediation is a family-centered conflict resolution process in which an impartial third party (the mediator) helps the participants in negotiating a consensual, informed and fair agreement.  Decision-making rests with the parties themselves throughout.  The mediator does not impose their decisions on the parties.  The mediation is voluntary on the part of the parties.  The mediator assists the parties in identifying issues and information needs, reducing obstacles to communication, exploring alternatives and focusing on the needs and interests of those who it is agreed are affected.  The mediator does not provide legal advice to the parties.

Parties often experience difficulty communicating effectively during a separation or divorce.  Mediators are trained to assist parties to more clearly express their concerns and understand the concerns of the other party.  This enhanced communication often builds bridges of communication that can result in an atmosphere where options can be reviewed and agreements reached.

Mediation can save you time and money. It is confidential and provides you with the chance to explore a wide range of possible solutions. It also allows individuals to make their own decisions and retain control of the outcome.  Mediation can be used to assist parties to come to agreement on a wide range of issues they may be facing as a result of a separation or divorce.
