In many situations, it’s possible to resolve your legal issue without going to court. Mediation, an alternative to court, is a confidential, voluntary process where a mediator helps create workable solutions to your family law matters. With more than 25 years of experience working in a mediation setting, Galarneau & Associates Professional Corporation has an experienced, compassionate and affordable team ready to help you.
Through mediation, the knowledgeable mediators at our Ottawa firm will provide you with the tools to resolve your problems, help you find new ways to communicate with others and direct you towards a better relationship and positive outcome.
Family Mediation is a quicker, more affordable, and hassle-free alternative to dispute resolution through litigation in the courtroom. In family mediation proceedings, family issues are presented and addressed by a neutral family mediator who helps the couple find suitable solutions to their problems rather than continuing conflicts. The mediator can also call for other professionals such as relationship counsellors for emotional support, mental health and parenting. The primary objective of family mediation is to resolve the spouses' disputes in a personalized, cooperative, agreeable and respectful manner.

Family mediation is for couples who agree to settle their disputes in a mutually respectful manner. It is a voluntary process in which the concerned parties strive to find a solution rather than confront one another. The goal of family mediation is to make divorce as painless as possible for both parties involved. The process entails that both the spouses sit down in a neutral environment to work on their family issues productively.
