Mediators can help families deal
with many types of conflicts, marital separation and
divorce issues, as well as intergeneration conflict,
senior care decisions, and disputes involving estates.
WE BELIEVE FAMILIES ARE BEST SERVED
by using mediators trained to deal with the issues at
hand. We also believe that in marital disputes, CHILDREN
COME FIRST and their issues should be given priority
in any mediation service.
MEDIATORS typically have a background in counseling
and child development, and can assist families with
• parenting issues after separation and divorce
• inter-family disputes, including parent-child conflict, elder care decisions
FAMILY MEDIATORS usually have a legal background
and can deal with
• financial issues of child and spousal support after separation
• division of property after separation
• other financial or family business conflicts
• estate disputes
FAMILY MEDIATION may be offered by a person
having background training in both law and social work.
Sometimes, two mediators from different disciplines
may team up to provide CO-MEDIATION to better assist
families in conflict deal with all their issues.
CONSUMERS OF MEDIATION SERVICES ARE URGED TO ASK ABOUT THE TRAINING AND EXPERIENCE
OF POSSIBLE MEDIATORS BEFORE RETAINING THEIR SERVICES. THIS WILL HELP TO
ENSURE YOU RETAIN A MEDIATOR BEST ABLE TO DEAL WITH THE ISSUES INVOLVED
IN YOUR CONFLICT.
