Frequently Asked Questions
What is Mediation?
Mediation is a guided process that can help people experiencing conflict to arrive at resolutions to disputes that work for all the parties involved. It can be very effective and efficient, especially when compared with protracted legal disputes and court battles, and often serves to resolve conflict with enduring agreements and mended relationships.
How Does it Work?
With help from an impartial mediator, participants engage in facilitated phone or online meetings and discussions. These enable the mediator to guide the parties to a constructive framework that allows them to create their own resolutions to their disputes. Individuals are often able to resolve complex disputes with fairness and create solutions that last.
What Does Mediation Cost?
It's difficult to accurately predict mediation costs in advance, of course. Depending on how far apart the parties are, how agreeable and flexible the situation is, and other circumstances, mediation can provide a far more affordable solution to conflict than protracted court disputes and other methods.
