Mediation involves a series of meetings in which a neutral, qualified and impartial individual, also known as a mediator, facilitates negotiations between parties to assist them in reaching a voluntary agreement regarding their dispute. During a family mediation, the mediator will guide and assist the parties to find a solution for various disputes relating to, divorce, separation, cohabitation, financial and other issues to arrangements for children. Once an agreement is reached between the parties, it is made binding by a court order. For a couple who either has a child or, is marred or, bound by a civil union, mediation is obligatory.
Our team of lawyers can provide constant support and assistance through the mediation process to ensure that an agreement is reached, even in complex situations.
Care & Custody Agreements
In situations where unmarried parents have children, it is always advisable for a Care and Custody Agreement to be set up in order to have a clear delineation of the rights and obligations of each parent. Such agreements establish such matters as the Care and Custody of the child, the principal residence of the Child, Access rights, and Maintenance Obligations amongst others.
We take the welfare of children seriously and our aim is to lessen complex custody issues between the parents. Our lawyers will work with the client to do all that is necessary to protect the child and fight for their rights to reach the best possible solution.
We can assist our clients in drafting and negotiating carefully worded care and custody agreements that work best for the client and the child. In cases where a resolution is not reached through mediation, we will also assist our client before the Family Court.
