The journey of divorce is not an easy one. Luckily, online mediation can provide a less costly and more stress-free alternative to expensive attorneys and tearful courtroom proceedings that would leave you financially burdened and emotionally exhausted. Our experienced mediators will work with both of you virtually, helping create a tailored separation agreement that respects everyone’s interests and leads all parties towards successful closure.
Jennifer Curry has worked in the social services field for nearly two decades and witnessed firsthand how divorce affects families across Ontario. She understands that financial disputes are among the most significant obstacles couples must face when reaching agreements and for this reason, she has acquired extensive training in financial analysis to set herself apart from other mediators.
With this specialized knowledge, Jennifer can help couples come together and create amicable solutions for their separation.
When it comes to navigating a successful settlement, financial disputes are often the most arduous obstacle couples face. According to The Family Law Act (FLA), married spouses have specific entitlements when dividing family assets such as homes, investments, pensions and vehicles; whereas common-law partners do not.
Generally, assets are split evenly when the marriage or partnership ends. However, if one partner holds more valuable possessions than the other, they must make an equalization payment to balance it out once their debt is taken into consideration.
Leveraging our advanced and cutting-edge technology, we efficiently assess your assets, liabilities, and overall financial situation to ultimately guide you toward a fair resolution.
Co-parenting is often a difficult task, however having an in-depth parenting plan focused on your children’s needs can ease the process. From weekly schedule details to communication and education expectations – these plans ensure that everyone involved understands what they need to do while providing flexibility when life throws curveballs.
Our team of experts will work with both of you to draft a detailed parenting plan tailored specifically for your family dynamic.
As parents, you and your partner have a legal obligation to provide for the needs of your children. Child support payments are intended to cover expenses such as food, clothing, personal care items and extra-curricular activities. The amount each parent pays is based on federal and provincial guidelines that take into account both incomes and number of dependents in need of financial aid.
Your mediator can assist you with determining an appropriate payment amount according to these established regulations.
After a separation or divorce, spousal support payments may be required from one spouse to the other. This amount can vary according to several different criteria such as length of marriage and differences in income.
Calculating these payments accurately often proves difficult in Ontario, which is why Jennifer Curry stands out among her peers; with her extensive training on matters regarding family law finances during divorces, she has become an invaluable asset for accurate and just settlements.
During an exploration session that is completely free of charge, we'll take the time to listen to your story and provide a comprehensive overview of the mediation process so you can make the best decision for yourself.
After signing the agreement to move forward with mediation, we meet one-on-one with each individual to understand their concerns and objectives.
After doing a full financial disclosure, each party will meet with their legal representatives to review the paperwork and obtain specific counsel prior to engaging in joint mediation sessions.
During our online sessions, you will be requested to collect all necessary documentation. From there, we'll collaborate on a comprehensive parenting plan that considers financial support and division of resources.
After you have reached a final agreement through the mediation process, you will then review your mediated agreement with your assigned lawyer to review and obtain ILA.
Once you have finished your ILA sessions and a final agreement has been established, the last step is to sign it with one of our notary publics in addition to two independent witnesses.
