Conflict among family, friends, or neighbors is one of the most stressful situations we face. Though preserving and rebuilding these relationships is critical, too often we permanently damage or destroy them by adversarial court processes such as lawsuits. At Skeena Solutions, we believe in the proactive idea of a forward focus on mutual respect, communication, and problem solving. We do this in the following ways:
Mediations - Formal mediations can be used to resolve specific issues either outside of or as part of a court process. Mediations can be used for:
- Developing or revising a parenting plan
- Property division or inheritance issues
- Family disputes (between parents and
teenagers, parents, students and teachers)
- Property boundaries, fences, barking dogs,
and other neighbor-to-neighbor issues
- Community or neighborhood disputes
- Developments and permits
- Landlord-Tenant disputes
- Church or other organizational issues
Facilitated Conversations – Some people need a little help communicating their thoughts or frustrations, and a safe place in which to do it. We help parties talk about tough issues with his or her spouse, business partner, family member, boss or neighbor. We help identify the stumbling blocks that block communication, and encourage parties to reframe comments so that they are positive and can be better received.
Building Communication Skills – Ex-spouses who continue to be co-parents must communicate often, but frequently have difficulty doing so. We help parties build communication skills over time, to allow them to work together in the best interest of their children.
