Posted by Karen Stewart, CEO & Founder of Fairway Divorce Solutions on 17 June 2015

Most children are familiar with the Cinderella story about a girl whose evil step-mother restricts her from attending the Royal Ball; the heartless queen who casts Snow White to the forest to be murdered because she was claimed as the fairest in the land; or Mother Gothel from Tangled who maliciously suckled Rapunzel’s youth.

Hey Jude

Posted by Marlo Saganski, Marketing for Fairway Divorce Solutions on 5 June 2015

Over the weekend myself and a group of friends decided to go camping outside of Invermere in British Columbia.

It is the perfect playground for them to enjoy; the dogs were chasing each other up and down the hill that sat beside our site, they followed the men into the bush and helped drag back wood for the fire, and they sniffed every tree that we passed on our hikes.  At night we attached glow sticks to our two dogs in order to see them in the dark. The glowsticks helped us a lot to know where they were, otherwise they would blend into the sheet of darkness.

I work with many couples that support each other’s parenting style and strive very hard to ensure that their divorce does not negatively impact their ability to co-parent. These people will go out of their way to ensure that both Mother’s and Father’s Day is a sacred day for thanking each other and ensuring the children in turn do the same. For these couples it is pretty easy and also a non negotiable.

Happy Mother’s Day: Honouring my Ex?

Posted by Colette Fortin, Owner of Fairway Divorce Kitchener on 10 May 2015

30% of Ontario children will experience their parent’s divorce before the age of 18.  That means that 1/3 of our children will be living in different houses, usually sharing time between Mom’s house and Dad’s house.

You Can't Cut 7 In Half

Posted by Colette Fortin, Owner of Fairway Divorce Solutions in Waterloo-Wellington on 24 March 2015

The thing about divorce is that for most people, it shakes them to the core. Everything they thought their life was going to be has suddenly changed. It feels as if the carpet has been pulled out from under them and, as a result, everyone feels a real loss of control - about their entire life!

It’s no wonder people grasp to regain ‘control’.
