Mediator For Couples in Ontario
What is Family Mediation?
Separation can be a painful and challenging process. Family mediation is ultimately designed to make the process less difficult, by creating an environment that will allow both parties to amicably dissolve their partnership. With family mediation, a qualified impartial professional will facilitate collaboration between you and your ex-partner and help you both reach legally binding agreements on all aspects of your separation, from assets to childcare.
Together with your ex-partner, you will build a fair, sustainable agreement that reflects both of your interests, and leave the process with a clear roadmap for moving forward.
