How does the process work?
- At the mediation, trained mediators will listen to all sides of the dispute. Each party will get a chance to explain, uninterrupted, their own point of view. The mediator will encourage communication from all sides to uncover facts, identify issues, and explore possible solutions.
- When the parties reach a solution, their agreement will be put in writing by the mediator. It is then a legally enforceable document.
