What Happens in Mediation?
During the mediation process, each person is given an opportunity to describe the situation from their own point of view. Trained mediators then guide the discussion, defining issues, so that everyone is solving the same problem and developing creative solutions which best satisfy the needs of all parties. When agreement is reached, the mediator puts the agreement in writing and a signed copy is given to each person.
Types of Mediation:
- Divorce Modification
- Probate Disputes
- Landlord / Tenant
- Employment / Employee
- Merchant / Consumer
What Kinds of Issues Can Be Mediated?
Types of issues mediated range from barking dogs in the neighborhood to business/consumer disputes to divorce and custody issues to all types of general civil disputes. The DRC-MC mediates some minor criminal matters (like fighting) and does some juvenile restitution mediation. The dispute DOES NOT have to be a law suit in order to be handled by the DRC-MC. We try to get people to try mediation before they file suit!
