Garneau Mediation Services specializes in Separation and Divorce Mediation. We have assisted over 1600 families to successfully resolve issues regarding parenting, communication, child support, spousal support (i.e. alimony) and division of assets and debts. Traditionally when people decide to separate or divorce, they hire lawyers and often go to court to resolve their issues. Today, this school of thought is changing. Judges are encouraging mediation as a way for people to resolve their differences when going through the Separation and Divorce process.
Typically when we first meet with clients, they are not agreeing with one another and are doubtful they will be able to come to an agreement. However, in at least 80% of these cases, mediation is successful! The people we see in mediation do have varying degrees of conflict between them. On occasion, there is little or no conflict, but they want to get a divorce in a simple and economical manner; others may get along most of the time, but do not see eye-to-eye on a particular issue; and frequently we see people who are in moderate to high conflict and have little or no communication with one another.
We meet with clients who are separated, divorced or have lived common-law, as well as those who have children and those who do not. Through the assistance of a specially trained mediator at Garneau Mediation Services, you are given the opportunity to work together to find solutions that can reduce stress for you and your children, improve communication and help you to move on with your lives in a more peaceful way. Our aim is to create an environment that allows you to express your needs and concerns and opens the door for you to come to a resolution that is mutual.
We provide a more private, time efficient, respectful and affordable alternative for resolving your conflict. We are available to discuss your individual mediation needs and offer you a 20 minute no-charge phone consultation. Please contact Michelle Garneau for your free consultation.
