What is Mediation?
Divorce Mediation is a confidential process, guided by a neutral third party, who assists separating couples work through the terms of their separation.
The mediator acts as a facilitator to assist the parties in making decisions on matters such as finances, division of property and the parenting of their children. Although trained in family law, mediators have no authority to make decisions, or provide legal or financial advice.
Mediation is confidential and only involves the mediator and the two parties (unless the parties agree otherwise).
Mediation is a faster, less expensive and less stressful option for parties working through the terms of their separation. They have control over the outcome of their separation instead of a third-party, or a judge, making decisions that might not work for them or their family.
Mediation is a great alternative to the adversarial, legal process and allows the parties to work together in an amicable fashion, to create a mutually acceptable Agreement.
