Mediation for Families in Victoria and Across BC
Family Mediation (also referred to as Divorce Mediation or Family Law Mediation) can help you and your former spouse navigate the process of separation and all of the decisions for your children and your finances. I will help you both get organized and ensure you are making informed decisions by providing you with legal information, options for financial disclosure, child development information, options that other families in similar circumstances have found helpful and other resources or referrals if needed.
In my process you will make a lot of decisions together, which also supports decision-making after the mediation process – this is critical if you have children. Separation is a project and I am here to help. Mediation for families in Victoria and across BC is my area of expertise.

How Long Will it Take
When this is the case we build this into the process as mediation is certainly not a one size fits all and must be tailored to the unique circumstance of the families involved. Not everyone needs an appraisal for their home or valuation of their pension or business, however this is often a decision best made in mediation by both parties. It can be important for spouses to have some say in the decision making on who to hire in order for them to feel the appraisal or valuation is unbiased and to avoid paying for multiple appraisals.

It is also important to look at what you own as a couple and what you owe together and how this could be shared. Finally, if both parties agree that spousal support is an issue then parents need to decide on the amount of spousal support that will be paid and for how long. Part of my role is to help you and your former spouse come to an agreement on all of these decisions.
