What is Mediation?

Mediation is a fair, impartial and consensual process, whereby the mediator acts as a facilitator between the two parties. The mediator assists the parties in reaching decisions regarding their family issues, including division of assets and liabilities, child support calculations, and timesharing or custody arrangements.  All communications in mediation are confidential and can not be used against a party in court. Mediation puts the decision-making powers into your hands. The mediator does not make the final decision – You DO!  By using a mediator, you have chosen to control your own fate and not leave it to a judge, who does not know the depth of your family dynamic or the value of your possessions. Mediation lets YOU BECOME THE JUDGE!

What to Expect?

Prior to the meeting, you will have a free 30 minute telephone consultation with Jenny to briefly discuss the issues to be mediated. The mediation will be scheduled once a mutually agreeable date is chosen by the parties. The session will be conducted either in person or virtually. All family matters will be openly discussed and resolved with the mediator. After all the issues have been resolved, Jenny will draft the required documents. The entire process is confidential unless the law requires certain disclosures. After all the issues have been resolved, the mediator will draft the agreement. Prior to signing the agreement, it is highly recommended that the parties seek legal advice, regarding the contents of the agreement. A mediator can not provide legal advice about your rights and responsibilities.
