The Law Itself Favors Mediation
When issues arise which could otherwise lead to court proceedings, it makes sense in most situations for people to resolve these disagreements through mediation.
Per the Divorce Act, it is the duty of your lawyer or advocate to discuss the viability of negotiating as well as the options available to you.
Mediation has proven to be an effective alternative to court battles for many types of cases. In fact, there is a general rule that all large unsettled court cases in Toronto, must go to compulsory (“mandatory”) mediation. In general, you can mediate even in the midst of a court case.
When you have a need for mediator to help settle your dispute, call The Resolution Alternative!
The primary focus of mediation is to come up with practical solutions. The goal is to achieve a settlement in writing.
Mediation aims to reduce stress and to support the parties during the entire process. Making sure that each party is free to express their views is of central importance. Where there are children involved, even adult children, this can be the more peaceful road, for their sake.
