What is Mediation?

In Mediation, a qualified neutral person (the Mediator) facilitates communication between the parties to promote settlement. A mediator may not impose his or her own opinion, so it is very different from going to court. Mediation is based on the principle of self-determination by the parties in order to voluntarily reach agreement.

What Does a Mediator Do?

Mediators provide a safe and structured environment and facilitate communication between the parties in order to help them reach settlements.

If the value statements listed below are important to you and your spouse or the other party, then Mediation may be the right process for you:

I want to use one qualified neutral person to facilitate discussion of the issues rather than each duking it out in court and letting a court decide. I want to use an efficient and cost-effective method of dispute resolution. I want to avoid going to court and instead create a settlement outside of court.
