Mediation is an opportunity to be creative with options and reach agreements that benefit
everyone involved. You avoid court battles and legal fees, but it's more than that.
Discussions facilitated by skilled mediators can, and often do, bring parties to new

Mediation is a voluntary and confidential process that uses an impartial third party to help
people discuss difficult issues and reach agreements. The mediator helps people identify
specific issues, talk about what they each want, and what they perceive to be fair. Mediators

may offer suggestions for the parties to consider.
