Divorce Mediation.

Divorce happens and when it does, cut your losses!

Divorce mediation saves time, money and stress! Here’s how…

What is divorce mediation

Rather than each hiring a lawyer to “duke it out” in court, the divorcing spouses use our services (formerly Fairway Divorce Solutions – Kelowna) to help them negotiate what is best for themselves and their family. We help you find a fair solution! In fact, divorce law across North America is changing considerably in favour of mediation and BC is leading the way! Our mediation team becomes a neutral third party to help you work through the issues – with a goal of win-win.

Divorce Issues

The following is a list of just some of the issues that you may need to resolve before you move on independent of each other: 1. Matrimonial property (Assets/Liabilities) 2. Investments and pensions 3. CPP 4. Child Access, Custody, Guardianship and Parenting 3. Child Support/Maintenance 4. Whether or not there is entitlement to Spousal Support 5. Spousal support calculations and establishing duration 6. Taxes We help you focus on keeping the lines of communication open, reducing the conflict, explaining the process, exploring options, playing devil’s advocate, and whatever else it takes to assist the couple in moving forward. Mediation allows you to control the process, empowering the spouses to settle their differences by working together. If children are involved, co-parenting is encouraged in most cases because the children will be far better off in the long run. We encourage the spouses to negotiate in an open, transparent and safe environment. And since no one is “stirring the pot” and making the situation adversarial as does the traditional process, the spouses can work in a less stressful, collegial way. As a result, mediation consistently takes far less time to reach resolution. On average, our couples find closure within 3 -6 months. On the opposite end of the scale, litigation in the courts can cost many thousands of dollars and take years to settle! As well, the litigated cases lead to a win-lose scenario with no one happy at the end of the day, and farther apart than they ever were. Why have a judge who knows nothing about you and your children tell you how you are going to live the rest of your lives? A judge’s order is far less flexible than a family agreement negotiated between you and your spouse.
