Season Three Premiere

Next to the death of a spouse, divorce is considered one of the most stressful life events a person can endure. With the stakes so high -- hurt and angry feelings, assets on the line, mounting legal fees, and child custody agreements -- is it even possible to end your marriage on friendly terms?

Louise Pelletier holds a Masters in Social Work and is a mediator and partner at Facilitated Solutions in Winnipeg. She discusses what mediation involves versus going through traditional court proceedings, how couples can decide if mediation is right for them, if lawyers are needed, how mediators help open the lines of communication between a divorcing couple, ways couples may save money and more.
