A more formal separation agreement is often required for bank financing or filing in court. I prepare formal separation agreements, with or without conducting the mediation. If desired, for a fee I can use the same software that the courts and use (DivorceMate). Another option is that I have partnered with 'The Collaborative Legal corp and Mediation centre' to offer a model we call '1 day divorce program'. An evaluative mediation approach is used, with the mediator assisting participants to identify their post-separation issues, actively suggesting options and finding solutions. In collaboration with a lawyer, a formal agreement is drawn up and is ready for you to take away at the end of the day. Learn more here.
