To Do List

There are many choices to consider when you decide to separate.  Start by making a list and imagine how you want your life to evolve.  Be specific and consider the following:

  • How to improve communication
  • Your children’s needs and wants including their schools, friends, health, activities and religious values
  • Your financial concerns and expectations such as child support, spousal support and other expenses
  • Individual banking requirements
  • Where you want to live
  • Whether you need to find new employment
  • If therapy is required for you or your children
  • Your life insurance policies
  • What financial responsibilities are in your name
  • Your emotional welfare
  • Seek support from family and friends

Keep all your ideas, thoughts and concerns in a notebook or a personal journal.  Try to keep all your notes and ideas in one place.

Take some time to review our Resources.  They are filled with useful ideas.  You should also read the FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) which can help you decide whether Family Mediation is the right choice for you and your family.

On our Forms page, print the Client Questionnaire and review the questions carefully.  It will help identify some of the choices you’ll have to make during separation mediation.  It’s personal.  This is about you and your life.  Each party will require their own Client Questionnaire.

On the Forms page, you will also find our Closed Mediation Retainer Contract as well as our Advice in Mediation document.

Call Rosenfield Mediation (905.731.2680) for your complimentary 30-minute consultation.  This will provide additional information based on your specific circumstances and will help you feel comfortable with our services.

Family Mediation works if both parties want to resolve their differences amicably.  When relationships fail, both parties need to find common ground in order to reach agreement. We can help you find that common ground.

Separation is difficult.  Rosenfield Mediation can help.
