FAQs: Mediation


What is mediation?

  • Mediation is a method of resolving disputes with the help of an impartial third party mediator. The mediator works with the parties to find optimal solutions in a manner that is cooperative and non-adversarial and takes into account each person's interests.
  • Most mediators will guide the parties through a specific process to ensure that each individual’s needs are met and to ensure that the conflict and animosity between the parties is decreased.
  • A family law mediator can resolve all issues in dispute between married and unmarried individuals, including parenting, custody, access, child support, spousal support, and property division. Pre-nuptials and Cohabitation Agreements can also be mediated.
