Looking for an amicable divorce ?

We help couples negotiate Separation Agreements*

Mediation is the Answer

For most people, going through the process of separation and divorce is a very emotional time. Even though you may agree to divorce, you might not agree about anything else. Talking to each other, and making mutually beneficial decisions regarding financial division, child & spousal support, and custody can be very difficult. This process often goes more smoothly when a Mediator is present.

A Mediator is a neutral and impartial third party who is there to assist you in your negotiations. You make the decisions yourselves. Couples who are unable to make these decisions together, may end up having to go to court to let a judge make decisions for them. Divorce Mediation offers an alternative to the expensive, stressful, time-consuming, and adversarial process of going through the Ontario court system. For couples who wish to save time, money, and preserve relationships, Divorce Mediation is the answer.
