Default Parenting Mediator in Ottawa?

Hi Everyone,

I'm in a high-conflict situation with my ex, who refuses to speak to me directly and is accusatory and hostile in emails. My daughter is starting school next week and I need to discuss her schedule and payments for her after school program, etc. I do not want this to go through our lawyers, as that has already led to confusion.

Can anyone recommend a person or program who can help with this - a parenting mediator or coordinator in the downtown Ottawa area? Any suggestions about dealing with this type of situation would also help.

I think I am dealing with the type of person described by Bill Eddy in his books - a narcissistic personality who derives satisfaction from conflict and is unable to empathize or put the needs of his child first.

Thanks,

MC

Not sure how a mediator's going to help. There needs to be a willingness on both parties to make that work.

Default Thank you

Thanks for the names. I realize that it may not work, but it is worth suggesting, I think.

Has anyone tried this with any success?

We tried mediation early on, then met with a parenting coordinator, but nothing worked then and it may never work . . .

I'm not sure what to do.
