Mediation is a voluntary process that brings disputing parties
together in a neutral setting to resolve issues. At the mediation session, the mediators facilitate the discussion, ask questions,
and write up any agreement the parties reach. The mediators are not judges and do not impose a solution. The parties themselves
decide on the actual agreement. Each party receives a copy of the agreement. Because the agreement reflects decisions made
by the participants, mediated agreements enjoy high rates of compliance.
A typical mediation lasts one or two hours
and can be scheduled for days, evenings or weekends.
Mediations are held at Community Mediation Service's New Hope
office or another more convenient, neutral location.
