**Independent Legal Advice
Any legal information found on this website must not be interpreted as legal advice. There is no intention to create attorney client relationship. As a Mediator, I do not give legal advice, and I do not make decisions for you. I work to guide you through the negotiation process. I am not a lawyer. In accordance with the OAFM “Standards of Practice”, I must inform you of the availability of independent legal advice, the advisability of obtaining it from the outset of the mediation, and that seeking independent legal advice prior to signing the mediated agreement is advisable. The production of your Separation Agreement, is purely an administrative service and does not imply any legal advice. The Separation Agreement is simply a reproduction of the information received from you throughout the mediation process. It is always recommend that you seek out and obtain Independent Legal Advice before signing any legally binding contract. A Separation Agreement* is no different. If you wish to ensure that your Separation Agreement* will be stand-up in court if your spouse ever tries to counter any part of the contract, then you are both advised to seek and obtain ILA on your Separation Agreement* before it is signed.
