Mediation is an opportunity to manage conflicts differently.
With the help of mediators, you can discuss issues and talk about
your concerns. In mediation, you — not the mediator —
control the decisions and the outcome.
Mediation brings people in conflict together in a comfortable
and safe setting. The mediators will help you talk to each other
to clarify goals, gather information, and identify options. It
is up to you to decide what will meet your needs as you manage
the conflict. What is discussed with the mediators is kept private
• Mediation is quick, convenient and free. There is a nominal charge on a sliding scale for separation and divorce mediations.
You make your own decisions about how to deal with the conflict.
Solutions that you arrive at will be far more satisfying and lasting
than anything imposed upon you by others.
