Family mediation provides an opportunity for parents to resolve issues relating to decision-making, parenting time, support and property. Mediation allows you to control the decisions that affect your family, your children, your finances and your future relationship. The process helps to sort out the practical and legal arrangements while focusing on the future. Family mediation begins with individual intake sessions prior to engaging in joint sessions. Joint mediation sessions take place in a safe, supportive space so that you can both feel comfortable while moving toward resolution. Any agreements made are provided in a non-binding mediation report.
Child-inclusive mediation is a specialized process of mediation designed to assist parents in reaching good decisions for their children’s future arrangements. It is a process that helps separating parents to focus on the best interests of their children while giving children the opportunity to have their views heard. Children who have had an opportunity to express their views about the issues affecting them often feel less anxious as a result. Child-inclusive mediation is different than traditional mediation as it also considers parenting issues through a child’s eyes. It can help parents to make parenting decisions that include the wishes of their children.
Family Mediation Services are being offered virtually via Zoom Videoconferencing or in person.
