I am pleased to announce that I am now a Certified Specialist in Mediation with both the Family Dispute Resolution Institute of Ontario (FDRIO) and with the Ontario Association of Family Mediators (OAFM). I would be pleased to assist in mediating disputes about parenting time, parental decision making, child support, spousal support and equalization of property (or any other family law issues). I conduct mediation via Zoom. Parties may have their own lawyer participate in the mediation as well or mediation can be done without lawyers present but with lawyers reviewing any draft agreement before it is signed. Mediation can be booked for either a half day or a full day. Both options include a private initial intake meeting with each party as well as the drafting of any agreement that is reached within the time period available. I charge $400 (plus HST) per hour for mediation (the same as my private hourly rate for legal representation or advice). The parties may split this cost between them.
