At Fairway Red Deer we know how hard divorce conflict can be. We developed our Independently Negotiated Resolution™ (INR) mediation method to get you through it one manageable step at a time. We’ll help you understand the issues, make informed decisions, reach an agreement, and move into the future.


The benefits you get from Fairway

Get back to living againGoing through a divorce can be exhausting, stressful, and all-consuming. Your mediator will help you get you through it in months, not years, so you can move forward into your future, sooner.

Reduce time, stress, and expenseThe Fairway INR method is a proven, process-driven way that moves you both through the divorce process fairly, efficiently, and far more cost-effectively than expensive and stressful courtroom battles.

Keep moving aheadWhen a marriage ends it can be difficult to work together. But instead of stalling out when one person isn’t ready to talk about an issue, our process allows you to work privately with your mediator through many steps of the process, in the order that works best.

Use the right professionals at the right timeDepending on the complexity of your situation, you may need a variety of professional services. We’ll bring in one of our extended independent team of legal, financial, and other experts at just the right time, so you won’t run up unnecessary costs.

Took emotion out of an emotional time

The Fairway process removed a lot of the conflict and bitterness from an otherwise very painful process. It helped to take a lot of the emotion out of an emotional time, to allow clear thought at a time where emotions can easily take control.
