You are in the process of separation or divorce and wish to resolve this situation amicably?
FAMILY MEDIATION: A VERY EFFECTIVE TOOL TO REACH AN AGREEMENT HARMONIOUSLY
Mtre Ioanna Lianis, lawyer and accredited family mediator with engagements, offers family mediation services which promote exchanges between the parties in order to reach an agreement without the intervention of the courts. She is a member of the Association des médiateurs familiaux du Québec (AMFQ) and its promotion and advertising committee.
Since communication between spouses can be more difficult in a situation of separation or divorce, the mediation gives the opportunity to freely exchange views in a favourable climate for discussion. The role of the family mediator is to act impartially so that the parties may come to an agreement on legal aspects in a spirit of good cooperation where the interests of both parties are taken into account.
As part of the family mediation program of the Ministère de la Justice, you could be eligible for up to 5 hours of family mediation free of charge, if you have a child of minor age, or a dependent child aged 18 or above, to help you make informed decisions and resolve sensitive issues amicably:
- The custody of the children, the residence of the children and access to the children
- The exercise of parental authority
- The financial responsibilities toward the children
- The financial responsibilities between de facto spouses or spouses
- The division of property
- The division of the family patrimony
- The settlement of the matrimonial regime
- Any other family reorganization issues
You could also be eligible for up to 2 hours 30 minutes of family mediation free of charge to revise an existing agreement or settle a dispute arising in the application of this agreement.
If you are a couple without dependent children, you may also seek recourse to mediation by an accredited family mediator to facilitate the process of a separation or divorce. However, you will have to pay the professional fees of the mediator in accordance with the terms agreed upon by the parties.
