Mediation services are completely confidential. The first step is to conduct separate mediation conferences with the parties. Next, a follow-up conversation is held with each party confirming the other party's agreement to mediate. Then, a mediation date is set. On the date of mediation, both parties will have the opportunity to share their views, concerns, and desires with the mediator separately. The mediator's role is to assist the parties in structuring a solution acceptable to both parties, prepare the Settlement Agreement and provide all parties with fully executed agreements.
