  MEDIATION Family mediation is a voluntary, confidential process of resolving disputes between separating or separated couples and developing a parenting plan without going to court. Susan, acting as a neutral third party, helps the couple to resolve underlying issues, leading to better communication and cooperative co-parenting, with less likelihood of breakdown.After a parenting plan has been developed, couples are invited to return on an as-needed basis, to make revisions in line with their children’s developmental stages.Mediation is cost effective, and may also be used to resolve other types of family disputes.Please feel free to call and discuss your situation to see if mediation is for you. Mediation intake forms are available on this web site.
Custody and Access Assessments are performed under Section 30 of the Children’s Law Reform Act, or by consent of both parents. They are used to develop a detailed parenting plan, which strives to minimize parental conflict and enhance children’s adjustment to their parent’s separation. Assessments are useful for parents who are unable to reach an agreement regarding the division of time and decision making for their children.Custody and Access Assessments generally take 3-4 months and involve extensive interviews with parents, children, family members, friends, and professionals who have been involved with the family. Time is spent getting to know the children in the home and school settings. The final report is presented to the parties and their counsel. The details are then discussed at a Disclosure meeting. Many people find they are able to reach an agreement regarding the needs of their children at this time.Please feel free to call and discuss your situation to see if a custody and access assessment would benefit your family. Intake forms and fee information are available on this site.
