WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE MEDIATION PROCESS?
PRIOR TO A MEDIATION SESSION:
When you contact our office, our staff will ask questions about your problem and determine whether mediation is an appropriate step. We will request contact information for all those involved (names, addresses and phone numbers). They will then be contacted and invited to a mediation session. We schedule a mediation session at a convenient time and place and provide a neutral, professionally trained mediator to facilitate and lead the session.
The mediator facilitates the session keeping the participants on track and ensures that the process remains fair and focused on the issues. The participants enter into agreements voluntarily – no one is required to agree. Arriving at a solution is up to the disputing parties who decide together what is a fair and equitable solution. You as a participant are in charge of the solution rather than having a judge determine what the outcome of your dispute should be.
If an agreement is reached, you will receive a written signed copy of the agreement. If the matter was a court case, the court will be notified by the Mediation Center that the case was settled through mediation.
HOW MUCH DOES MEDIATION COST?
Our fees are reasonable but do vary based on the type of mediation and the length of mediation. For additional details specific to your case, contact us at 920-438-7067 or at: email@example.com
WHAT IF I’M EMBARRASSED OR AFRAID TO TALK ABOUT MY SITUATION?
Talking about conflict is often difficult for many people but we have found that mediation can work in a wide variety of situations. What happens during mediation is confidential. Our mediators are trained to respect both the confidentiality and the privacy of the mediating process.
