Colette Fortin is considered one of the top divorce mediators in Southwestern Ontario. She is an Accredited Family Mediator with the Ontario Association of Family Mediators, a member of the ADR and a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst. Colette is also a child development expert with 20 years of teaching and coaching experience. She brings a unique communication coaching element to the practice which allows people to rebuild post-separation communication.
As owner of the Fairway Divorce Solutions Waterloo-Wellington office, she has personally helped over 200 couples navigate the challenges of separation and has become the go-to expert for local media on divorce issues. Colette is a Kitchener-Waterloo resident who continues to spread the message that divorce does not have to devastate family finances and destroy relationships.
Fairway Divorce provides a comprehensive Divorce Mediation service, an alternative approach for divorcing couples to resolve all issues related to their separation (property, support and parenting issues). Their unique step-by-step approach allows couples to achieve their best outcome while preserving assets, saving time and protecting their future co-parenting relationships. With a focus on fair resolution, most couples complete their process in under 120 days and usually on a flat fee basis. The Fairway model accesses experts from a variety of areas (law, pension, business valuations) especially important for high net-worth couples with complex assets and/or family businesses.
Most of all, Colette and her team bring compassion, empathy and care to the process to allow families to move forward with dignity, optimism and hope.
