One hour free consultation with Family Mediator Colette Fortin

There are so many questions that people have at the beginning of the process, it can seem overwhelming.

That’s why we offer a no-charge, one hour consultation to help you understand the Fairway Divorce Solutions process, and to help determine if divorce mediation is a good fit.

Both parties must be willing to participate and work towards a fair resolution. At the end of the hour, you’ll also know what to expect in terms of fees for the process, the length of time it will likely take and the order of the step-by-step meetings that will follow.

At Fairway Divorce, we are committed to Changing the Way Divorce Happens.
