Your legal separation can be quick & comfortable with the right help.
You are trying to navigate your separation and divorce in your family's best interests.
It's a daunting legal system but you've come to the right place: family law mediation is not only effective but also one of the best choices for a low-stress, respectful, cost-efficient resolution. Family mediation lawyers have expertise in both family law and de-escalation of conflict.
Our mission is to inspire and facilitate healthy family transitions.
We've thought carefully about what most separating couples truly want and we've created an innovative process to help you achieve a quick & comfortable resolution so you can move on with life. We’ve found that the majority of our clients simply want to be legally separated in a way that is fair, quick, and preserves the well-being of each member of the family.
We work with kind-hearted, thoughtful human beings who are seeking closure & a fresh start.
If you are looking to disparage your spouse during the process, use intimidation as a negotiation tactic, or 'win' at the expense of your spouse and/or your children, we are not for you!
What is unique about our approach to legal separation in BC?
We help couples across British Columbia work through disagreements together in a way that minimizes stress and protects your savings. Rather than you each hiring your own lawyer, together you hire one mediator.
We know that you don't want to write a blank cheque for hourly billing of fees so we have created a flat fee package. This removes one significant source of stress during an already stressful time.
We will facilitate a detailed settlement discussion and then draft your Separation Agreement based on your joint instructions. Most of our clients finish our process with a signed Separation Agreement within one month.

Our approach is appropriate for you if:
You have a handshake agreement that needs to be 'papered' into a Separation Agreement
If you have already discussed and agreed upon specific terms, we can meet virtually or in person to review the details of your verbal agreement and then document your agreement in writing based on your joint instructions. In family law, a verbal agreement is not enforceable. The good news is that family mediators who are also members of the Law Society of BC (aka present or former family lawyers) are qualified to draft your legal Separation Agreement.
You are having difficulty agreeing on what should go into your Separation Agreement
Family mediation is a flexible and highly effective process. The goal is to reach the best possible outcomes for each person and the process requires respectful, good faith negotiations. With the guidance of a skilled family mediator, most people are able to effectively navigate separation and preserve the health and functionality of their relationship going forward.
We provide legal information regarding the issues facing your family, facilitate discussions of possible resolutions, and document your legal Separation Agreement in writing for you based on your joint instructions; all in ways that are tailored to your family's needs.
Family Mediation Roadmap
Each participant will have their own private & confidential Initial Consultation (by phone, video chat or in person). We are required by the Law Society of BC to meet with each participant individually before we meet all together.
If you both agree to participate, we will then meet together either virtually or in person as needed until you have reached the terms of agreement. Most of our clients need 1 - 2 Joint Meetings to reach agreement through our highly-focused process.
The family law mediator will document your Separation Agreement according to your joint instructions. You have the option of obtaining Independent Legal Advice before you sign the agreement (recommended but optional).
Please know that your separation doesn't have to be the awful battle that you've heard about from your friends. The majority of our clients complete their legal Separation Agreement within one month through our innovative family mediation process.
