Limestone Mediation

Limestone Mediation Ltd provides comprehensive mediation services. Mediation is an effective, creative and confidential problem solving process used to resolve a wide variety of disputes.
Limestone Mediation has a team of experienced, professionally trained mediators that provide the following services:

Family Mediation:
Family mediation services are provided in Frontenac and Lennox and Addington counties under contract with the Ontario Ministry of the Attorney General. Fees are on a sliding scale.

The primary goal is to help separated or divorced families resolve specific issues in a way that is fair and mutually agreeable.  Mediation requires that all participants have the capacity to negotiate safely, voluntarily and competently. The mediation process encourages participants to listen to and understand each other’s point of view, have a discussion that generates various options, and develop solutions that meet the needs of all participants; solutions that everyone can live with. The mediator can help parents understand how children are affected by separation and by conflict.  When conflict is reduced, participants are able to make more sustainable decisions re: custody, access, decision making, effective communication, parenting plans, division of assets, child support, spousal support and effects of separation and divorce on children.

Family mediation is not a legal process. We strongly recommend that all clients seek independent legal advice throughout the mediation process.

An Ontario Child Protection Mediation Roster has been established and is managed by the Ontario Association for Family Mediation.
