The Process of Mediation
During the meeting, the mediators will give each side a chance to express their thoughts and concerns without interruption. Then the mediators help the parties discuss the issues and create solutions.
It is the participants’ job to design a solution that works for them. The mediators are simply there to help both parties talk about the issues constructively, not to tell the parties what to do.
Once an agreement is reached, the mediators will write it up and the parties will sign. This agreement becomes legally binding for all parties.
If the parties are unable to reach agreement, the issue may still be taken to court or other dispute
Cases that Can Be Mediated
• Any case that could be brought to small claims court
Each party in mediation is responsible for a $100* fee, which is due prior to the mediation. A $25 fee will be charged to any participant who cancels with less than 48 hours notice.
* Grants may cover the cost of some mediations. Contact us for more information.
