Families coping with challenges such as divorce, separation, child custody and access can meet with a mediator to talk about these issues. Through mediation, you may be able to reach a mutual agreement that focuses on your child and avoids going to court. Family mediation is confidential and informal.

To use this service:

  • one of the parties must have a gross income of less than $40,000 per year
  • both parties must agree to participate
  • there must be at least one dependent child who is either:
    • under 18
    • 18 or older and eligible for continued child support

Mediation can help with issues such as:

  • parenting plans
  • child support
  • guardianship
  • communication
  • spousal support
  • property matters

You can request this service, or you may be referred to mediation by Court, legal or family professionals.
