The Family Law Act, which was enacted in March 2013, strongly encourages separated couples to first consider alternative dispute resolution such as family law mediation or collaborative family law before going to court. Whether dealing with child care arrangements, financial support, asset division and responsibility for debts following separation, it is important that each party obtain legal advice from an experienced family lawyer to understand their specific legal issues.
Family Law Mediation
A family law mediator is an impartial go between for both parties who are usually each represented by their own lawyer. The mediator facilitates communication and resolution of issues.
Collaborative Family Law
Collaborative family law combines legal representation and mediation. Each collaborative family lawyer is a trained family law mediator who assists her or his client to resolve disputes without going to court.
