MEDIATION PROCESS

INTAKE FORMS

Once you decide to use our services, we will send out intake forms to complete. These forms will give us the details of all parties concerned, chilldren involved, and background to the dispute. Both parties will need to complete and return these forms.

INTAKE SESSION

We will then arramge a private session with each party to go through the forms and discuss their position regarding the dspute, future needs and what they hope to achieve from mediation.


MEDIATION SESSIONS

Assuming there are no safety concerns to the children or any of the parties or property, and mediation proceeds, then an initial 90 minute mediaton will be arranged where both parties will be able to express their positions, concerns, needs and desired outcomes.

Through this process, options will be explored and hopefully a mutual solution can be agreed upon to everyone's satisfaction. It is not uncommon for parties to need 2 to 3 mediation sessions before a result is achieved.

PARENTNG PLAN Vs CONSENT ORDERS

With an agreement in place, we will assist in the drafting of a parenting plan which can be used by both parties as a guide to moving forward and implementing the agreed solutions.

Should both parties want to make these agreed solutions legally binidng, then the draft parenting plan can be forwarded onto your legal representatives who will assist with the drafting and filing of consent orders to the Family Court.
