New! Virtual Services

Until further notice, all of our services are provided virtually. We are not providing information or mediation services in person.


Family Law Information Centres (FLICs)

FLICs are operating 9-5 daily, with our resourceful Information & Referral Coordinators standing by ready to take your calls or respond to your emails.

IRCs will speak with you privately to share family law and family court information, resources and referrals.


On-Site Family Mediation

If you are interested in mediation, or if a judge has ordered mediation intakes, please fill out all three forms below.

FORMS REQUIRED FOR ONSITE MEDIATION:

  1. On-Site Intake Form
  2. Agreement to Mediate
  3. Terms on Online Family Mediation
  4. If you have been ordered by a judge to complete mediation intakes, or if you have consented to an order for mediation, you must send a copy of your Order to: [email protected]

 

When we receive your forms AND the other party’s (your ex), we will contact you to schedule your intake meeting and mediation.

Important: If we do not receive the other party’s forms, we cannot schedule a mediation. We are not permitted to request intake forms from the other party unless a judge has ordered you both to do intakes or you have consented to an order for mediation.

If you need help filling out these forms, or if you have any questions, please email our IRC for your courthouse and we will get in touch with you:

311 Jarvis St: [email protected]

47 Sheppard Ave: [email protected]

361 University Avenue: [email protected]

 

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

Once we have received all three forms from BOTH parties, we will contact you via email to set up an intake appointment. During your intake appointment, you will meet alone with the mediator (online via Zoom), and the mediator will assess if mediation is appropriate for your case. This meeting will last approximately 30 minutes.

If the mediator believes that your case is appropriate for mediation, the mediation will then take place. The mediation itself will take approximately 1-2 hours.

Since we are doing all mediations online at the moment, you should block off approximately 4 hours for the entire process (intake through mediation) to take place. Please note that you will have to wait while the other party does their intake meeting, and that party will have to wait while you do yours.

 

 


Off-site Mediation

FORMS REQUIRED FOR OFF-SITE MEDIATION:

  2. Off-site Agreement to Mediate
  3. Terms of Online Family Mediation form

Once we have received all three forms from both parties, you will be contacted through email to schedule an intake meeting.

Important: If we do not receive the other party’s forms, we cannot schedule an intake meeting. We are not permitted to request forms from the other party.

If you need help filling out these forms, or if you have any questions, please email [email protected] and we will get in touch with you.

 

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

Once we have received all three forms from both parties. Each party will receive a free one-hour intake meeting with a mediator through Zoom. This one-on-one meeting is where you will discuss your side of the negotiation.

Fees for the mediation are charged based on each person’s income and number of dependants. You will need to provide proof of your income, such as: your most recent income tax return or a pay stub, to your intake meeting.

After both intake meetings, the mediator will determine if mediation is the right course of action. If the mediator determines mediation is appropriate, they will schedule up to 6 hours of subsidized mediation.

We encourage all clients to obtain legal advice before, during, and after all mediations. We encourage you to bring your lawyer to the mediation if you have one. If you do not have a lawyer, speak to an IRC and they will direct you to available resources for legal advice.
