No matter what happens when you separate from your partner, your children must remain your priority.

Managing the administration of an estate can be one of the most emotionally distressing times.

Mediation is a structured negotiation between two parties. It is facilitated by an independent person, the mediator, who facilitates the discussion with the goal of resolving the issues in dispute.
Mediation is a private forum in which you have the opportunity to determine your outcome without giving that decision making power to a Judge, in which case neither of you may be happy with the outcome.
It gives you the opportunity to reach a legally binding and enforceable agreement with your former spouse, and in many cases, this enables you to move on with your life with the respect you previously had for each other intact.
