    What is mediation in family law?​

    Mediation serves as a method for families in conflict or facing relationship breakdowns to settle disputes.

    It can occur informally, involving a friend or family member as a mediator, or formally, with a professional mediator aiding the parties.

    The family law system promotes attempts at resolving family disputes without court intervention. Hence, mediation typically marks the initial step in a family law case. The court often requires a certificate verifying that parties attempted mediation before initiating court proceedings.

    Certain circumstances permit exemptions from this requirement:

    • Urgency, such as concerns of one parent being a flight risk with the child/children.
    • Instances involving family violence or child abuse.
    • Responding to a court application.
    • Parties agreeing to consent orders.
    • The inability of a party to participate in mediation.
    • Previous court orders with one party breaching the orders.

    I received excellent legal representation. Juliana’s and Monique’s professionalism is remarkable, along with their knowledge and execution of the law. With this being, not only a very difficult situation, but it was also an extremely sensitive and emotional time in my life and Monique handled this case from beginning to end with what I would consider perfection in every aspect. Highly recommend !! 🤗🤗😊 Thanks, J Yousef
