Family Mediation

Family mediation is available to couples (whether married or not) and is a voluntary process whereby the decision-making rests with the parties.  An impartial mediator assists the parties to reach an agreement by offering information and possible solutions. The parties are also encouraged to take advice from an advocate so that they are aware of their legal rights.

Often mediation can prove less expensive than litigation/court and leads to a result that both parties can “live with”.
