Kelly D. Jordan Family Law Firm: For Excellence in Legal Mediation Services
More people are turning to legal mediation services as a way to resolve legal disputes. The Law Offices of Kelly D. Jordan offers both family law services and family law mediation. Between 1999 – 2002, the government of Ontario piloted then put into place mandatory mediation in civil cases in Toronto, Ottawa and Windsor, then later expanded to all of Essex County. Why? Because mediation is proven on average to reduce costs, speed up the outcome of cases, and produce general satisfaction on the part of litigants and lawyers (Source Ontario Bar Association: Mandatory Mediation In Ontario: Taking Stock After 20 Years). In fact, legal mediation services were so beneficial that mandatory mediation was expanded to estate and trust disputes. Like civil cases, legal mediation services for estate and trust disputes freed up court time and provided quicker case resolutions.
Legal Mediation Services for Family Dispute Resolution
It comes as no surprise, then, that in 2019, the Canadian Parliament updated the Divorce Act to include appropriate provisions for using legal mediation services for family dispute resolution. Under the changes, legal advisors have a duty to encourage clients to try to solve issues through a family dispute resolution process like mediation, where appropriate.
As a lawyer, Kelly Jordan believes in the mediation process. Kelly is an experienced family lawyer and family law mediator, who has seen the benefits of mediation over the years of her practice. She even feels mediation can be used in some high-conflict divorce cases, and even in cases involving family violence.
