Family Mediation


What is Family Mediation?

Family mediation is a process used by people who want to discuss sensitive or difficult issues with the help of a neutral, professional third party, in order to reach agreement. Some of the more common issues are:

  • Parenting arrangements (the children’s schedules, parenting responsibilities, etc)
  • Division of family property and debt

As children get older, their needs and schedules change. Mediation can be helpful when arrangements you’ve made previously need to change.

If you go to court to sort out your issues, the judge will make the decisions for you. If you do not agree with the judge’s decision, you will still need to abide by the court order.

Mediation can help you stay in control. No one will make you do anything you don’t want to. The mediator will help you find a solution that works for you and your family.

Most people who start mediation will reach agreement without having to go to court.

What is Conflict Coaching?

Conflict management coaching, also known as conflict coaching is an individual one-on-one process, where a trained coach assists you to develop an understanding of the causes of the conflict and/or any occurring patterns that keep coming up. The client and coach work together to develop strategic options for change and the next steps necessary to make these changes.

Conflict Coaching is a powerful tool to help you improve relationships and deal with difficult problems.
