together to reach an agreement, with the guidance and advice of a training mediator.

- Mediation is not binding, while a Court makes orders.
- Courts are limited in their scope of remedies, Mediation comes to flexible solutions.
- Court proceedings can take years and be very expensive, while Mediation can come to quick and economical solutions.

Mediation for Family Disputes & Divorce
Family issues have a level of complexity beyond facts and numbers. The Courts are not designed to account for
family dynamic or address the underlying emotional causes of family issues.
Mediation can be a much faster and cheaper way of resolving divorce, custody and post judgment issues.
Privacy is an important factor in family dispute mediation as it helps keep other people out of family business.
Mediation for Business Disputes
The adversarial nature of Court pits individuals against one another and can result in the breakdown of business relationships.
In an employee dispute this could lead to termination. In a contract dispute to the loss of a profitable business relationship. In a co-owner dispute to the death of the business.
Mediation can help save business relationships and keep businesses running. Privacy and Expediency are an added bonus.
