Family, Separation, and Divorce Disputes

 “When we face serious family problems, we still usually say to ourselves ‘I must find a lawyer’. But in many cases it would do better to say ‘We must find a mediator’.” U.K. Judiciary

Issues within a family (around finances, children, divorce, separation, business, communication, etc.) can become volatile and very difficult to resolve internally within the family unit.  Disputing parties usually seek out a lawyer to try to resolve their issues. This leads to very costly and lengthy legal battles. These battles take their toll in terms of finances, time,  and health (mental and physical health); and create increased hostility and positioning among the parties. Once the battle reaches the court it is public, and a third party–a judge decides the outcomes, instead of the parties themselves.

Most often courts tend to recommend disputing parties attend family and /or divorce mediation services to help them come to a mutual agreement on their own using mediation. Agreements reached outside of court through mediation tend to result in better outcomes for the parties.

 

JRB Mediations is an effective alternative to costly litigation to help parties resolve their issues. The mediation services are private, timely, effective, and confidential.  JRB Mediations creates a calm atmosphere that is devoid of the natural rigidity and hostility of a court room. Discussions and negotiations between the disputing parties are carried out in a flexible environment where both parties can feel safe to openly discuss their issues and interests, and reach mutually acceptable agreements.

JRB Mediations helps parties resolve issues around:

  • Division of property
  • Child support
  • Spousal support
  • Parenting Plans/ Access
  • Other

Every family (with or without children) has their own unique set of problems and moments that may test their bonds. It is normal to have occasional arguments. However, when the fighting becomes nonstop or it becomes difficult to communicate with your partner or even your children then it is time to contact a professional mediator.

JRB Mediations can help all members of a family (not just parents and children) resolve difficulties about property, other possessions, finance, business, debts, parental access, supports (child/spousal), elder care and more. Family members may include: adult siblings, teenage parents, parents and their adult children, grandchildren and grandparents, and extended families members.

Civil Mediation (Business/Commercial and other)

Managing late payments, disputes with contractors or partners, issues with suppliers, non-compliance of contracts, disputes between board or panel members, etc. are all common conflict situations. They occur in the civil and commercial environment all the time and the cost to individuals and your business can be significant.

Escalating legal bills, and the cost of your time can become a huge burden to your business–damaging its viability and negatively impacting the financial stability and emotional well-being of all involved.

As an alternative (or adjunct) to taking legal action, mediation is efficient, quick, and is a significantly less costly approach than litigation. Mediation can help you and the other party reach a resolution and agreement to your dispute that is acceptable to each of you.

Mediation can be used to resolve a variety of disputes including but not limited to, commercial and business, condominium and real estate, insurance, healthcare, probate, workplace and employment, family disagreements, community, board disputes, and much more.
