Avoid a Courtroom Battle with Family Mediation in Kamloops

Our Kamloops Mediators Resolve Family Law Disputes Through Negotiation and Agreement

The costs of going to court can be high, and there is no guarantee as to the results. An increasing number of Canadians and Kamloops residents are turning to family mediation in order to resolve with family law problems rather than through litigation.

What Is Family Mediation?

Family mediation involves you and your partner meeting with trained family mediator in order to resolve parenting, separation, and/or divorce issues. It is something to try before starting a court case or at any time throughout your case in Kamloops.

 

Benefits of family mediation may include:

  • You can work out your own solution without involving the court

  • It can help both parties to work on communication and problem solving, thus reducing potential future conflicts

  • It keeps a focus on your children’s best interests

  • Potentially less costly than going to court

  • A more informal setting and is private, unlike court

  • It is voluntary so you can leave at any time

In order for family mediation to work, you must be interested in working with and communicating with the other party in order to find solutions for you and your family. If you cannot communicate your needs or listen to the other party’s concerns, mediation will not work for you.

 

When you work with a mediator, you will be able to work on solutions for issues, such as:

  • How and when to separate

  • Custody and access when it comes to parenting

  • Child support

  • Spousal and/or partner support

  • Division of property and assets

What to Expect from Family Mediation

The mediator will have confidential meetings with each party before any mediation meetings begin in order to understand each party’s interests and goals as well as to adapt the process to those needs. Afterwards, one or more joint sessions take place in order to reach agreements on the issues at hand. If successful, no litigation is necessary. If not, litigation must commence.

 

To start the process, see if the other side is open to mediation to settle your issues, either directly or through your lawyer.
