Mediation works because it is

  • Informal – free of red tape.

  • Fast – can produce agreements more quickly than courts. Agreements can often be reached in one meeting.

  • Convenient – sessions can be held evenings or weekends to accommodate your schedule.

  • Affordable – costs less than courts or attorneys.

  • Voluntary & Confidential – all parties sign a confidentiality agreement which states that information disclosed during mediation will not be disclosed to people outside your mediation without your written permission.

  • Helpful – promotes trust and understanding because each party has been heard.

  • Empowering – parties set the terms of their agreement.
