“Trust experience, trust mediation”

Parenting, child and separation mediation and dispute resolution

Every family situation is different and complex, and family disputes can be stressful for both parents and children involved. A variety of interpersonal relationships require a mediator with extensive mediation and negotiation skills, with experience in finding positive outcomes.

Where there are children involved, it’s especially important to have a mediator on board that will account for the child’s needs and understand how the potential resolution may affect the child at each stage of childhood development. Our main approach to any discussion related to children is to promote positive, parallel parenting and effective communication.
