What is Mediation?

Mediation, a type of alternative dispute resolution, is a method of resolving disputes in which individuals or groups in conflict meet with a neutral person (mediator) who assists them reach an agreement that resolves the dispute. The mediator remains neutral and does not judge, determine merit, or favor one side over the other.

It is a confidential voluntary process, where all agreements are reached by those most impacted by the conflict or dispute and the outcome. Mediated solutions are typically seen as "win-win" solutions to conflicts or disputes.

The final agreement consists of terms that both parties willingly agree to and feel good about. The agreements reached in mediation allow the parties move forward, past the dispute, focusing on where they wish to go in life.
