Four Counties Family Mediation is a program of Kawartha Family Court Assessment Service. The Mediation Program is funded by and under the supervision of the Ministry of the Attorney General. We provide family mediation services in Peterborough and the surrounding counties.

Mediation Is...

A voluntary method of resolving disagreements. It provides families with an opportunity to resolve disagreements arising out of their separation or divorce or over care for elderly family members. Parents, separating couples or adult family members may decide to participate in mediation to negotiate a settlement with respect to issues including:

  • A parenting plan for children
  • Child support
  • Spousal support
  • Division of property
  • Care of elderly family members


Mediation is a cooperative alternative to, or a complement to, the court process and has the potential benefits of saving time, money, reducing conflict, and preserving relationships. It is one of the most effective options when people are willing and able to put aside their emotional differences, anger, and frustration to work towards developing a plan which is mutually acceptable.
