Legal problems involving family law issues don’t always happen when lawyers’ offices or the courts are open. Making things worse, problems about parenting decisions and parenting time are often time-sensitive and simply can’t wait until the next business day to be addressed.

Subject to his availability, John-Paul Boyd will resolve after-hours family law emergencies by teleconference or videoconference, using a shortened one-hour mediation-arbitration process. The price for our after-hours services is set at an affordable flat rate shared equally by the adults involved in the dispute:

  • Single issue: $500 plus GST, for a total cost of $262.50 per person for disputes involving two people or $175.00 per person for disputes involving three people

  • Two issues: $750 plus GST, for a total cost of $393.75 per person for disputes involving two people or $262.50 per person for disputes involving three people

  • Three or more issues: $1,000 plus GST, for a total cost of $535.00 per person for disputes involving two people or $350.00 per person for disputes involving three people

Payment by electronic funds transfer or by credit card or debit card is required. Read our special emergency services med-arb participation agreement in the Participation Agreements page.

Note that our after-hours emergency services are not available when the people involved in the dispute are already engaged in mediation or arbitration services with another mediator or arbitrator without the consent of that mediator or arbitrator. Note also that people represented by counsel should speak to their lawyers in advance before using our emergency services.
