In mediation, a neutral third party facilitates a discussion between the parties and keeps them focused on options to resolve the dispute.
Often times in a divorce, the parties do not know how to settle property disputes, child custody and visitation disputes, or how to divide their community debts or file a Response. In Landlord-Tenant disputes, the security deposit or damage to the property could be the major dispute. In breach of contract disputes, the workmanship or product received could be the major issue.
The Mediator works one-on-one with each party to learn what the issues are and assists the parties to resolve their problems without court intervention, which can run thousands of dollars and take years in the court system. Mediation produces a voluntary, win-win solution.
