Ontario Association for Family Mediation - Ottawa Chapter Policy Statement (as at January,1998)

Mediators who help families deal with marital separation and divorce sometimes restrict their practice to specific areas according to their training and expertise.

WE BELIEVE FAMILIES ARE BEST SERVED BY USING MEDIATION SERVICES FROM A TRAINED MEDIATOR TO DEAL WITH THE ISSUES AT HAND. WE ALSO BELIEVE CHILDREN COME FIRST AND THEIR ISSUES SHOULD BE GIVEN PRIORITY IN ANY MEDIATION SERVICE.

FAMILY RELATIONS MEDIATORS who typically have a background in counselling and child development deal with:

  • parenting issues after separation and divorce
  • inter-family disputes, including parent-child and inter-generational conflict
  • child protection issues

FINANCIAL FAMILY MEDIATORS who typically have a legal background deal with:

  • financial issues of child and spousal support after separation
  • division of property after separation
  • other financial or business disputes

COMPREHENSIVE FAMILY MEDIATORS who have training in both areas provide comprehensive services, and other mediators form partnerships to provide comprehensive services through co-mediation.

IT IS ADVISABLE THAT CONSUMERS DETERMINE THE TRAINING AND EXPERIENCE OF POSSIBLE MEDIATORS PRIOR TO RETAINING THEIR SERVICES.
