HOW MUCH DOES FAMILY MEDIATION COST IN ALBERTA?


In Alberta, a trained Family Mediator may charge an hourly rate, a predetermined customised package rate, or a combination of both hourly and packaged rates. A fresh positive for those seeking an advanced fixed package rate is knowing the cost in advance, before committing to mediation. Bear in mind, package rates are always bespoke to the individual needs of the family or couple, as fees are based on the amount of issues and their complexities. With hourly rates approximately being between $150.00 to $500.00 per hour, and package rates that can range between $2, 000.00 to $20, 000.00. Whichever payment format a couple or family chooses is best for them, is always less than going through court. In addition to cost, a family or couple should be researching the training and experience of the mediator who they feel most comfortable with as they repurpose their relationship.




WHAT CAN I EXPECT AT A DIVORCE MEDIATION?


Expect to be heard, empowered, and to have control over what is agreed to in mediation. This is very different from litigation, where parties give up control to a judge. One should expect a mediation process that helps them repurpose their marriage relationship for a healthy fresh start, and mediation is the best avenue to accomplish this. This process has a third party, the mediator, who helps guide couples through their process of coming to a divorce agreement that works for all involved. After an initial consultation and the couple has decided to move forward with their Divorce, an Agreement to Mediate is signed to engage the services of the mediator. Generally, this Agreement details the issues to be mediated, the role of the mediator, and how the mediation will proceed.




WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A DIVORCE LAWYER AND A MEDIATOR?


Unlike adversarial lawyers, trained separation and divorce mediators are strictly impartial. Mediators do not advocate for either side, rather, they steer the separation process towards a strong settlement and understanding that will stand the test of time. Mediation is a much more amicable way to resolve a divorce. Even though the divorce mediator plays an active role in the mediations, it is the partners involved who are in full control over what’ discussed and the decisions made. Set against litigation, where the judge takes control of the whole situation and makes all the decisions.




WHAT SHOULD I DO TO PREPARE FOR DIVORCE MEDIATION?


Begin preparing by getting a separate journal that is completely private and safe so thoughts, feelings, information, and research can be captured. Ask yourself, what do I want to achieve while listing the objectives in order of priority. Now do the same for the other party, list those answers in the same manner as your own. Think of how you can best help the mediation and, ultimately, yourself with items such as healthy communication. List areas of communication that you feel you can help to ensure the mediation discussions and understanding can move forward in a better manner. An important research item is how to best proceed with their divorce, like mediation and what trained divorce mediators would they like to work with. Within this journal you will begin strategizing and preparing to negotiate for your best agreement; all of which your mediator will help guide you through.





Group Exercise Classes for Older Adults

 

Fit For Life have been delivering researched based group exercise therapy since 2001. Group exercise has been extensively researched and is highly recommended as an ideal form of physical activity, especially for the older adult. Fit For Life’s experience and expertise has led to the development of successful exercise intervention for older adults at all levels of physical ability. We deliver progressive, innovative and fun group exercise classes for older adults ensuring that benefits are gained by all who participate in our programmes.

The benefits of physical activity include staying independent if possible. We all know the importance of independence and we work with people as this becomes more challenging. We ensure that individuals achieve their own potential, providing support with personal goals and best practice interventions to achieve these goals.

A Fit For Life group exercise class will be:

  • Researched, designed and developed from years of experience and expertise

  • Measured – individual assessments are made prior, during and post 12 weeks block classes to measure progress

  • Able to cater for specific populations and medical conditions and for participants of different levels of ability or fitness

  • Fun, social, innovative and easily tailored to all participants

  • Delivered by a certified Fit For Life trainer
