Fairway Divorce Solutions

Canada’s Resolutions Experts

Using the professional skills of a financial expert mediator/negotiator provides you and your spouse a neutral 3rd party who can help you get the information you need so you can be an empowered decision maker, and make informed decisions.

How Fairway Can Help You

We can negotiate and mediate any family conflict without the use of lawyers, and we specialize in divorce and separation. Contact us today.

This approach works well when you and your spouse have:

  • May have different ideas on what is the “right thing” to do
  • Ideas on how to address issues regarding children but you are not aware of all the options
  • Multiple assets or debt (or both)
  • May have some tension when it comes to communication and the issues
  • A desire to reduce the emotional and financial stress this will put on you and your family
  • May not communicate well now and do not want to
  • May not agree on what is best for the children

Cost of Using a Professional Mediator/Negotiator

The average cost for a separation using Mediation/Negotiation is about $3,000-$8,000 per person which saves you around 50% or more compared to the traditional legal process. The average time to complete the agreement is approximately 120 days after financial disclosure. Traditional Law

The legal process requires both of you to hire a different lawyer and begin to position your case, resulting in a tug of war. You will have your lawyer, and your spouse has theirs. There tends to be considerable conflict in this process, and you will have very little if no control of costs, means and schedules. This approach may be your only option if you and your spouse:

  • Have a severe personality disorder
  • Refuse to provide disclosure and can not be easily located
  • Are experiencing physical violence
  • When one person is out of the country

The average cost for an uncontested separation using Traditional Law is approximately $25,000 per person (for a contested separation, the price can be significantly more) and can be greater than $100,000 and results in years of turmoil. The average time to complete the agreement for an uncontested separation is approximately 2-4 years.

Getting a Divorce

Fairway respects your time and your money. The average cost for a divorce through Fairway is approximately $3,000 to $8,000 per person, which can be far less than half the cost of the regular legal process. Also, the average time to complete an agreement through Fairway, once both of you disclose financials, is approximately 120 days which can be far less than a quarter of the time compared to the traditional legal process.

The Independently Negotiated Resolution™

A Proprietary One Stop Shop Process

Independently Negotiated Resolution or “INR” is an exclusive divorce mediation process only available through our centres. It is a unique process that focuses on bringing proven mediated resolution—with high importance on assets and children—to couples wanting to end their marriage, quickly and fairly. It is a thorough one-stop process that promises your Separation Agreement stands the test of time so you can quickly get divorced and move on to new beginnings.

We offer Independent Legal Advice ensuring that your Separation Agreement and your rights have been protected.

Our in-house Legal Department educates on the law, works with our Resolution Experts, drafts agreements and files for divorce on your behalf. For those who need it, an independent Lawyer can put your mind at ease and assure you that you would not have likely done better in court if you had gone that way.

We handle everything quickly — tactfully — thoughtfully:

Quarterbacking other professionals as required such as: Financial Planners, Pension Valuators, Business Valuators, Psychologists, Lawyers, Home Appraisers, Mortgage Brokers and Chartered Accountants.

Mediating with couples when appropriate. Achieving a parenting plan that works for all parties and preserves the integrity of relationships. Kids and parents are set up for success.

Negotiating financial agreements that address Division, Spousal and Child Support.

Utilizing methodologies that support independent, informed decision making. For the amicable to the conflicted, there are usually at least a few issues that parties are not on the same page about, and traditional mediation methodologies just don’t cut it. There can be either power or knowledge in balance which can result in one person feeling bullied or pressed, or worst, settling on an agreement to less than what they are entitled.

Independently Negotiated Resolution encourages couples to settle their family law cases privately without having to go and stand before a Judge.
