What is the Role of a Registered Family Mediator?
Separation, Divorce, Estate and other Family Matters
As a registered family mediator, my role is to inform and facilitate communication. As a family mediator, who is also a lawyer, I can offer information on what the law is in Alberta, and identify “grey” areas where people need to seek independent legal advice, for example: inheritances, spousal support. As a mediator, I do NOT act on behalf of either party. Individuals are provided with a Mediation Report. A properly prepared Mediation Report with all the background information needed forms the basis for legal agreements and court orders. A mediation report is not a legal document. However, it can save time and money where there is a willingness to come to a fair and equitable settlement.
