Family Mediation

 

Why Choose Positive Solutions over other Mediators?

  Positive Solutions Divorce Services® Other Mediation Companies
Professional We only hire Accredited/Certified family mediators who meet the requirements of the Ontario Association for Family Mediation and the Family Dispute Resolution Institute of Ontario. Many mediators do not have appropriate skills and training and are not regulated by a governing body.
Documentation We prepare Separation Agreements for our clients, which can then be reviewed by your lawyer. We will make any amendments needed at no additional cost to you, saving you time and unnecessary legal fees. Mediators provide clients with a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which then goes to individual lawyers to have drafted into a Separation Agreement.  This incurs additional costs to the parties.
Careers We focus strictly on Family Mediation. May have other occupations and have implemented mediation as an add on to their existing businesses.
Experience Work with over 200 clients per year. May only see 3 – 5 clients per year.
Scope of practice Comprehensive services; including financials, child and spousal support and parenting. Limited scope of practice i.e. parenting only.
Support  We provide on-going support for our whole team. May not have any peer/professional support.
Accountability We require all our mediators to attend continued education to stay up to date on new, relevant information. There is no one monitoring if they are keeping to date on new, relevant information or if they are continued education.
