Very early on in our separation, it was recommended to me by a few people that we should perhaps consider securing the services of a mediator to assist in the process of arriving at a final separation agreement. We did just that, and we have worked through this potentially stressful exercise with Gail Belchior. I have to admit that my initial concerns were centred around how I could possibly get a fair shake during negotiations with myself, and 2 females at the table. Gail assured me very early on that her role was to remain completely neutral, keeping both our interests at heart, while working towards ultimately arriving at an amicable conclusion. She also assured us both that she would do her best to minimize the stress levels for everyone involved. This absolutely proved to be the case, I am happy to say that Gail kept her word, and upon reaching a final conclusion, I am glad that I chose this route to reach the point of final separation.
