Legal disputes in the court system can take months or even years to complete. The longer a family dispute takes to resolve the higher the financial and emotional toll on the family. This is where mediation can help.
A Department of Justice Canada study in 2007 found that cases which included mediation resolved about 5 months faster than those which did not. That’s 20 weeks, or 140 days of less stress and emotional turmoil a person would have to endure and time that could be spent moving forward.
Mediation is available any time – even before court action is started.
Mediate BC is hosting a panel discussion with family mediators in Surrey on February 17, 2015 and our family mediators are in Provincial Courthouses across the province providing information about family mediation to those engaged in the process of separation and divorce.
