Family Mediator Roster Mediator Details

I have practiced family law since 1994 and gained extensive experience in: involving multi-party disputes; jurisdictional disputes; child maintenance; spousal support; divorce; child protection related matters; property division and international child abduction disputes. I have facilities that are accessible for persons with disabilities. I also have mediation facilities. I am prepared to travel throughout BC to mediate family law matters and child protection matters.
Kelly Harvey Russ is a British Columbia lawyer and is certified as both a Family Law Mediator (Law Society of BC [since 2004] and Mediate BC [since 2018]) and a Child Protection Mediator (Mediate BC since 2010). Kelly Harvey Russ is also a certified Family Law Arbitrator (Mediate BC). At Kelly Harvey Russ Law Corporation, we can assist you in determining how best to resolve the issues arising from the end of your marriage or common-law relationship so that your dignity and your interests are protected.

I have and continue to practice exclusively in the area of family law. However, over the past 25 years, I have found that mediated agreements provide a more satisfactory outcome over litigation. A negotiated resolution to the end of a relationship, typically through mediation, is often preferred as it enables couples to control the outcome. However, mediation is not appropriate in all cases. In some circumstances it may become necessary to litigate some or all of your issues to protect yourself, your children and your financial well being.

I have either taken or taught over 28 courses related to Family Law and Child Protection matters and would welcome the opportunity to assist in resolving your family matter in a timely manner.

First and foremost, I consider it a fundamental human right for a child to grow up free of conflict.
