You may find that you have times when you need outside help to resolve conflicts within your family.
A mediator can help you communicate to find solutions.
A "family" may be any version of the following:
1. An in-tact family - a family that lives under the same roof and operates as a unit.
Examples of possible conflicts: purchasing a new home, taking a new job, living with an adult child, planning your estate.
2. A separated family - a family which lives in separate homes due to divorce or separation.
Examples of possible conflicts: sharing custody of children, resolving asset division, calculating support payments
3. An extended family - multiple generations of a family living in the same or multiple households.
Examples of possible conflicts: estate planning, long term care planning, family business management and succession.
4. Fictiv Kinship - extended family members who are not related by either blood or marriage.
