It is recommended that a lawyer review agreements obtained in Mediation. So why use Mediation if you have to see a lawyer anyway?

Mediation is a process that emphasizes communication. Mediation follows a researched and recognized process to allow the clients to share their views, opinions, needs and interests. The clients in this way not only recognize their own feelings but gain an understanding of the other client’s position. This is a critical element to allow for more amiable relationships in the future.

Divorce Act

There is a new revised Federal Divorce Act as of March 2021.

The Divorce Act only applies to married couples. The Divorce Act does not apply to common law relationships.

One of the key changes in this new Divorce Act is that the Act repeatedly cites that the decisions in divorce must be made in the “best interests of the child”.

Another change is the descriptions; custody is now referred to as “parenting time/parenting schedules”.

 

Mediation works to resolve disputes because it allows the clients to communicate. Mediation utilizes a recognized process to facilitate communication. The Mediation Process incorporates various steps. These steps allow the clients to assess and discuss their positions.

In assessment of these positions, the Mediator will use the skills that they have been taught through Mediation classes, to identify the needs and interests of each client. Revealing underlying needs and interests will create understanding of the issues. The clients will achieve a greater understanding of the underlying reasons for taking their position.

As of March 1, 2021, most family law matters in Regina will be required to go through an early family dispute resolution process before moving ahead with court proceedings. So, what does this mean for you? This means that if you want to go to court to sort through your separation and divorce, you will have to choose between available options including family mediation, collaborative law services, family law arbitration, and parent co-ordination.

Mediation is not well understood. It is often misunderstood. Google mediation and Meditation will pop up.

Mediation is a communication process whereby clients can meet with a Mediator to discuss their conflict.

A Mediator is a neutral educated professional who will guide the clients in their discussions.

The role of the Mediator is to encourage the clients to share their views, their needs and their interests. The clients will be encouraged to listen to the other client with the focus on understanding their priorities, expectations, assumptions, concerns and hopes.

The Mediation Process is a structured recognized process that allows the clients to fully explore their underlying issues.
