A family mediator helps people resolve legal issues relating to parenting (custody & access) , child support, spousal support and financial division upon separation and divorce. Terms of a prenuptial or cohabitation agreement can also be negotiated through mediation.
Mediation is confidential and can be faster, more amicable and less expensive than court. Mediation is voluntary and the fees are shared by the participants. A mediator cannot provide legal advice but can provide legal information.
The mediation process consists of separate intake appointments followed by a joint session. Once a resolution is reached, the mediator will prepare a draft agreement which can be converted by a lawyer into a Separation Agreement, Parenting Agreement or Pre-nuptial Agreement.
