Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), or a conflict resolution process, where a skilled, neutral individual meets with the parties to facilitate the negotiation of a settlement. Mediators do not decide the issues, or impose a solution – they help parties understand and reach a mutually agreeable resolution.
Mediation helps parties avoid the costs and challenges of the adversarial litigation process of going to court and waiting for the Judge to decide who wins, and who loses.
The mediation process is an interest-based process. In a safe, respectful environment the parties can explore what is important to each of them and why, while working toward possible resolutions, which become a Memorandum of Understanding, or Mediated Agreement.
Family mediation assists with the settlement of all separation issues, including custody and access, guardianship and parenting, child support, spousal/partner support, and division of property.
