What is Mediation?

Mediation is a way for people to resolve disputes with the help of a neutral third party or mediator.  In a divorce matter, a mediator helps couples work out a mutual agreement on issues of parenting, financial support and property division.

In civil disputes, a mediator helps the parties to the dispute find ways to resolve their dispute without resorting to litigation. In litigation, juries can only award money damages, but in mediation, the parties settlement can be more flexible.
