What is Marital Mediation?
When difficulties arise in a marriage couples often try to resolve those issues through couples therapy or couples counselling. Many practitioners in the field of mediation believe that mediation can be a practice that is as effective in saving marriages as it is in dissolving marriages. In marital mediation, the focus is specifically on the nature of the problem in the marriage, with minimal looking back on how the problem developed. Rather, the focus is on looking forward and finding solutions for the problem. This approach very often proves to be softer, quicker and less expensive than therapy or counselling.
What is Divorce Mediation?
Divorce mediation is a process wherein the mediator will serve as a facilitator for the divorcing couple to dissolve their marriage and decide on matters of custody and equitable distribution. During the process, the couples will address, discuss and resolve all the issues that will be incorporated into their agreement. The process allows couples to negotiate with each other in an atmosphere of dignity and respect. For these reasons and many others, mediation has been proven to be more cost effective, less stressful, and faster than a litigated divorce. Mediation is not about winners and losers. It’s about helping couples reach agreements that are not only in their own best interests but in the best interests of their children as well.
What is Divorce Coaching?

Your divorce coach will help you make sure that you don’t look back on your divorce with regret. Rather, you will be able to reflect on it with the knowledge that you handled this difficult challenge with dignity and clarity of mind, and acknowledge that it was a critical step in the direction of living a happier and healthier life.
