Mediation Program

What is mediation? 

Mediation is a process in which an impartial mediator helps parties in conflict have a constructive conversation about their dispute in a neutral setting. The mediator encourages and facilitates resolution of disputed issues by encouraging joint problem solving, consensus building among parties, and exploration of alternative settlements. This allows the parties to develop their own agreement, rather than having the judge decide the issues. All information and communications during mediation are confidential (except as provided by law), and will not be provided to the court.  

What is the goal of the program? 

To improve the lives of families and children who appear before the court by trying to resolve custody and visitation disputes through mediation in order to minimize family conflict, encourage shared decision-making, and support healthy relationships and communication among family members. 

How much does the Mediation Program cost? 

Certain cases are eligible for free or reduced-fee mediation.  Please check with your lawyer or judge assigned to your case to see if you qualify.  If your case does not qualify, the cost is $150.00 per hour.
