We are pleased to announce the extension of our
Family Mediation Sliding Scale Project
Now till March 31 2020

I am a firm believer in alternative dispute resolution processes, particularly, mediation. It is in your family’s best interest to avoid court, if possible.

To help families access mediation services, we are offering family mediation on a sliding scale.
The Burnaby Family Mediation Sliding Scale Project will help parents/families obtain mediation services to help resolve their family issues and avoid court, if possible.

Our sliding scale is based on income only when there are no assets. If either or both parties own real property (house, condo, land), the fixed flat rate of $250/hour will apply.

A copy of each party’s most recent tax return must be presented to the mediator to conclude the correct rate/package.

Also, for those individuals who are seeking information only sessions or if one party has selected the mediator and is introducing the mediator to their (ex) spouse, one hour joint meetings are available. These meetings are not to be confused with the pre-mediation meetings that take place with each individual before the start of the joint mediation session. The information meetings are carried out after a 10 minute free phone consult. Total cost is $100 plus tax ($50 each party).
