Family Mediation

Helping families work through disputes with each member in conflict. A problem-solving process to help people resolve family conflicts resulting from a relationship breakdown. A mediator assists families in clearly defining their issues and reaching an agreement on those issues in a productive way.

Separation is always a difficult and emotional time. If you and your spouse cannot come to an agreement on your own, a mediator may be able to help you communicate better with each other and reach an agreement. Mediators are neutral third parties who can help you agree on a variety of issues, including support payments, the division of property, or custody of and access to your children. You should review any agreement you reach during mediation with a lawyer before you sign it.

Did you know? In all Saskatchewan court jurisdictions (effective July 1, 2022) family law matters that come to family court will be required to attempt a family dispute resolution process by the close of pleadings before they may continue with any further court proceedings. We are listed on the minister’s list to conduct these sessions (Section 44.01 of The Queen’s Bench Act, 1998,). Click here to learn more.

Co-Parenting Mediation

Parents and blended families can use this service to help them communicate better and work towards an effective parenting plan. Families with parenting plans that are not working can use this service to find solutions that work better for them. This service can also be used to draft parenting agreements.

Intergenerational Mediation

Intergenerational Mediation (Elder and estate mediation) is becoming more popular for families that need to discuss issues affected by aging. Studies show that most families struggle to know how and when to discuss issues affected by aging. We help you and your family craft solutions to issues that need to be addressed. We encourage our clients to discuss these matters calmly and productively giving the voice back to how the older person sees the decisions affecting his/her future. If he/she enjoyed trips to watch the sunset at harvest time, how can the family respond to ensure these events continue? It is one thing to take away the driver’s license while still providing the outlet for families to ensure that these driving outings still occur. Click here for more information

Victim Offender Mediation

With the assistance of the mediator, the victim and offender begin to resolve the conflict and to construct their own approach to achieving justice in the face of their particular crime. Both are given the opportunity to express their feelings and perceptions of the offense (which often dispels misconceptions they may have had of one another before entering mediation). The meetings conclude with an attempt to reach an agreement on steps the offender will take to repair the harm suffered by the victim and in other ways to “make things right”.

Participation by the victim is voluntary. The offender’s participation is usually characterized as voluntary as well, although it should be recognized that offenders may “volunteer” in order to avoid more onerous outcomes that would otherwise be imposed. Unlike binding arbitration, no specific outcome is imposed by the mediator. Instead, the mediator’s role is to facilitate interaction between the victim and offender.
