Avoid the Courts and Opt for Mediation


Avoid the Courts and Opt for Mediation

Did you know that some divorce lawyers offer legal mediation services? A mediator can help you and your spouse reach a fair agreement regarding your assets, child support, and home.  For example, have you discussed who gets to keep furniture, art, vehicles and property? Using a meditator can help you work out the details of your separation agreement. Many attorneys would recommend mediation before litigation, and due to the changes in the Divorce Act, lawyers have to share all mediation options. If court mediation is appealing to you, book a free 10-minute call with Kelly D. Jordan, a divorce mediator in Toronto. 

What Does a Divorce Mediator Do? 

A divorce mediator helps you and your spouse work out the details of your divorce and avoid trial. Instead of having the courts decide your future, a divorce mediator acts as an unbiased third-party person that takes the time to listen to both sides. The role of a mediator is to act as a neutral person committed to helping both sides reach a fair agreement. In addition, both people will be able to negotiate and make their requests. Mediation is your chance to have open communication between you and your spouse without the pressure of a courtroom. To learn more about the benefits of mediation, read our blog post here.
