It is important to know that there a number of ways mediation can be done. For example, you and your ex-partner may decide to sit across from one another in the same room with a mediator in the middle to direct discussion. Or you may decide that you would like to undergo the shuttle process whereby you and your former partner will sit in different rooms and will communicate through the mediator. Either way, our main objective is to reach a mutually agreeable resolution that enables you and your former partner to move on.
