Mediation is the voluntary process in which a mediator facilitates negotiations between disputing parties. The mediator’s role is to help the parties find a mutually acceptable solution to the dispute. Mediation can save parties time and money, as opposed to traditional litigation.

Mediation does not impose a solution; it is not binding until the parties reach and sign a settlement agreement. Mediation allows parties to come up with a solution that works best for their family.
