Mediation is a voluntary and private way to resolve your family law issues out of court. During the process, former spouses work with a professional family law mediator to negotiate an agreement. The mediator is neutral and does not make decisions, but instead facilitates conversation and guides the parties to design a solution for their family.
Kathleen is an accredited family mediator through the Ontario Association for Family Mediation (Acc. FM) and the Family Dispute Resolution Institute of Ontario (FDRP-Med).

Parties can address all family law issues including parenting, spousal and child support and property division through mediation.
The process is tailored to each family and can be cost effective as the parties share the cost of the mediator.
Although Kathleen is a lawyer, when she is acting as a mediator, she does not provide legal advice to either party. Participants are encouraged to seek and obtain independent legal advice at all stages of the mediation.
