What to Ask for in Divorce Mediation

Understanding Divorce Mediation

Divorce mediation is a process where a neutral third party, known as a mediator, helps divorcing couples negotiate and reach mutually agreeable solutions. Unlike traditional litigation, mediation promotes cooperation and communication, aiming for an amicable resolution that benefits both parties. At Divorce is Simple, based in Burlington, ON, we offer both in-person and online mediation services to all Ontario residents, making it convenient and accessible.
