Is Mediation the best option for you and your family?
Mediation is a voluntary method of resolving family disputes where a mediator – a trained third party – helps a couple address their issues. When you work with Virk Law, one of our trained mediators will meet with you and your partner, and together you will explore potential solutions to your disputes in a collaborative environment. In our experiences, it’s possible that you and your partner can agree to terms without going to court. Mediation is often less expensive than a traditional divorce, as the cost of one mediator is usually less than both spouses paying for a lawyer.
A Mediator will not take sides and will not try and affect your reconciliation by imposing solutions. Instead, a mediator assists with options for resolution and will explore the needs of everyone involved by identifying issues.
Is Mediation right for you? To find out, we have compiled a comprehensive questionnaire to help you make the right decision for you and your family.

Our Lawyers on the benefits of Mediation
“Mediation can work even when there is a high level of conflict as long as both parties are committed to engaging the process in good faith. In Family matters, mediation provides a process that is can consider children’s needs and interest. It can help reduce the emotional and psychological impact on all family members during separation, which can in many cases lead to more effective and long-lasting settlement.”
“Having the ability to resolve a family law matter with the assistance of a mediator can help create a resolution that is just, fair and reasonable. Mediation is a voluntary process in which the mediator helps the parties make decisions which are informed and in the best interests of parties. Mediation will typically be more cost effective and quicker than litigation in court.”
“Mediation is a great option for couples who are willing to compromise and dedicate themselves to finding solutions that consider the well-being of everyone involved – especially children.”
