A mediator can help you focus on what truly matters.
In British Columbia, family law disputes are increasingly being resolved through alternative dispute resolution options, such as mediation. In many situations, mediation is preferable to litigation as it is more efficient and cost-effective than going to court. Mediation is an effective way to avoid the stress and pressure from the breakdown of a relationship as mediation allows both parties to discuss their concerns in a neutral setting.
In addition, using mediation helps you and your partner retain more control over the outcome of your relationship breakdown.
Mediation is used to resolve several separation and divorce issues such as the division of assets, child guardianship, child support, and more.
Mediation is conducted by a mediator, who acts as a neutral third party. A mediator can help both parties focus on what truly matters to them and limit the amount of unproductive dialogue. Furthermore, mediation is confidential. The details of the mediation cannot be later used in court, thus allowing the parties to freely discuss possible solutions.
Our lawyers at Dreyer Davison Family Lawyers have attended several successful mediations helping our clients avoiding the unnecessary stress and expenses of going to court.
