Collaborative Law and Collaborative Divorce promotes respect and places the needs of children first.
Family mediation supports parents and children through family change and disruption.
At The Tax Management Centre we are specialists in Collaborative Practice and Family Mediation. We are members of an interdisciplinary association of lawyers, financial planners, social workers, and health care professionals, working together to create a better way to provide co-operative conflict resolution relating to separation and divorce.
We are committed to assisting families in reducing the human and financial costs of conflict resolution.
Do you have a financial family situation that requires resolution? Isn't staying out of court what you'd prefer?
Family Mediation is a voluntary, consensual process in which a neutral person helps clients discuss and resolve family relationship issues.
Collaborative Law and Collaborative Divorce promotes respect and places the needs of children first. Collaborative Practice is a different way of divorcing that can help you make a healthy, hopeful transition from one stage of your life to the next.
The Tax Management Centre’s Collaborative team has taken special training so they can assist you to:
Resolve family law disputes without going to court
Remain focused on the best interests of children
Ensure full and complete disclosure of all important information
Negotiate in a principled, dignified, and respectful manner
Explore as many options for settlement as possible
Research creative resolutions that best meet the goals and priorities of the individual family.
Family mediation supports parents and children through family change and disruption, particularly where it has occurred as a result of separation, divorce, or family restructuring. A family mediator can help families to communicate without taking sides.
What can be mediated?
Residence of children
Pensions / Endowments
Settling of debts
Wills and probate
Care of older relatives
The mediation process enables the parties to emerge from a separation or divorce with their dignity and with their self-respect intact. A mediated agreement will generally cost a fraction of the cost of adversarial litigation in court.
