Fairway has been helping Canadians since 2006
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.
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.
Our Fairway Red Deer team What you need most when navigating a conflict is a solution, and the sooner, the better. Our job is to get you to the next phase of your life fast and without draining your finances to get there. Fairway mediators are accredited experts in divorce, business and family negotiation, and conflict resolution, and we live where we serve.
We understand the landscape of Red Deer, including Alberta mediation policy and the needs of our community. All of Fairway’s final separation agreements and plans are based on the family laws of your jurisdiction, including the: Federal Child Support Guidelines, Family Law Act, Adult Interdependent Relationships Act, Matrimonial Property Act / Family Property Act, Dower Act, and the Divorce Act. Our unique INR mediation method ensures you leave us with everything needed to close this chapter and begin your next adventure.
You’ll work with a dedicated mediator who will guide you through each step of our INR method, keeping negotiations on a timeline and your priorities at the centre of the process. When necessary, your mediator will meet with you and your partner or spouse separately to provide both of you the opportunity to make decisions on your own. Your final separation agreement will reflect everyone’s needs, preferences, vision for the future, and be based on matrimonial and divorce laws.

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.
