How Does Family Law Mediation Work?

Mediation is about working together to resolve disputes with the guidance of a mediator.

Mediation is voluntary. It is confidential. And in mediation, you make your own decisions–you control the outcomes. Michael Lazaruk has the training and experience as a mediator to help you.

As mediator, Michael will

  • arrange for a neutral, safe meeting place at a time that works for all parties
  • be impratial and unbiased
  • explain the mediation process
  • help all parties agree on the items that will be discussed during mediation
  • encourage open, honest communication of issues
  • help you find ways to collaboratively resolve disputes
  • work with all parties to find mutually agreeable solutions
  • arrange for additional mediation sessions if needed.

In addition, Michael can help you formalize mutually agreed solutions in a Memorandum of Understanding that is not legally binding, but can be used as the basis of a legal agreement or Court Order.

Find out if family law mediation is right for you. Even if you are already involved in a court process, you can talk with Michael about whether family law mediation is an alternative. Call Michael Lazaruk at 1.780.801.0607 or complete the Contact form on this page.

Lazaruk Law: Collaborative Family Law Services

If Michael is your collaborative family lawyer, he will

  • represent your interests throughout the collaboration process
  • provide legal advice and legal guidance
  • work towards a respectful solution for your family
  • protect the well-being of your children through such means as a co-parenting arrangement
  • represent your interests in the creation of a separation agreement that is tailored to meet your unique situation.
