Mediation is a process led by a highly qualified, experienced and impartial professional who will help you and your ex-partner come to agreements on all aspects of your separation. You leave the process with a legally binding separation agreement and parenting plan if needed.

A Separation Agreement is a contract between you and your spouse or partner that states the settlement of issues relating to your separation. Drafting your Separation Agreement is an administrative task and by doing so does not mean we are implying that we are lawyers and providing any legal advice.  We strongly encourage any persons who are going through mediation to receive Independent Legal advice from a family law lawyer.
