Family Mediation

Me Fortier takes her accreditation as a family mediator very much to heart.

Me Fortier adheres to the thinking that the law should tend towards alternative modes of conflict resolution, as illustrated by the reform of the Code of Civil Procedure of Quebec, and encourage these methods. That's why she takes her accreditation as a family mediator very much to heart.

Whether they are in the process of separating or already separated, she offers couples with children the possibility of settling their differences by benefiting from government-subsidized mediation sessions.

Private mediation for couples who are not eligible for government-subsidized sessions.

Me Fortier also practices private mediation for couples who are not eligible for government-subsidized sessions or for those who have exhausted their number of subsidized sessions.

This process allows for some introspection, and will also help you weigh the pros and cons of your situation. Throughout the mediation process, Me Fortier will guide you in order to obtain an agreement in accordance with the wishes of each and respecting the rights of both parties.

This way, the solution belongs to the ex-spouses, since they choose it themselves. If they decide to go to court, the solution will be decided by a judge who, despite having the best intentions in the world, is a person who does not know the parties, their children, their values or their way of life.

Me Fortier always favours mediation when the situation allows it.

This process of discussing, negotiating and searching for joint solutions respects the interests and needs of both parents, while keeping the best interests of the children as the primary goal.

Me Fortier always favours mediation when the situation allows it. Not only does it ensure that the solution originates from her clients, but it can save them years of litigation, complex and expensive legal issues, anxiety, restless nights, stressful court testimonies and more.
