Relationship and parenting issues are complex enough without the additional stress and confusion of a court proceeding. Whether formalizing or dissolving your union, there is another path to resolution that gives you more influence over the final outcome. Mediation is a compelling alternative to litigation. It brings parties together within an organized and cooperative structure and can often lead to results in a single day. This shared process can save time, animosity and the disruption of an adversarial court proceeding.

COOPERATIVE. POSITIVE. PRODUCTIVE

What is Brenda Christen Mediation?

Brenda Christen Mediation is a family mediation practice in Toronto that assists at both ends of the spectrum, from formalizing unions to dissolving relationships. We work with all combinations of families to achieve efficient and consensual results for all involved.
Mediation is a voluntary process in which all parties participate in good faith. In a marriage breakdown, mediation can help to settle substantive issues before a divorce is granted, such as child custody, visitation and child support. The process is typically more expedient than going to court and gives spouses more control over the process and results.


Why choose Brenda Christen Mediation?

When couples make a long-term commitment such as marriage, our mediators can assist with negotiating marriage contracts and prenuptial or cohabitation agreements. This process can relieve stress and provide clear understanding about the consequences of entering into such a union.


When couples are separating, our mediators can alleviate the strain, expense and animosity that often arises during a court proceeding. In voluntary mediation, couples work toward a consensual agreement that achieves the right results for all parties on issues such as asset division, child

and spousal support and parenting plans. The types of issue resolution we assist in are wide and varied.


In the event that parties are not able to reach a consensual agreement they can choose to participate in a private arbitration process, using one of our experienced lawyers to act as the decision maker to determine and resolve the issues. This is a private dispute resolution process that allows the parties to finalize matters without the need to then proceed to court. The arbitrator can work with the parties and their counsel to implement a process designed to bring closure to their disputes.
