Mediation Is...

A voluntary method of resolving disagreements. It provides families with an opportunity to resolve disagreements arising out of their separation or divorce. Parents or separating couples 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


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 separation plan which is mutually acceptable.
