What is mediation?
Mediation is a conservation about making decisions. That is a very powerful concept, the idea that you – the one who has lived the experience that brings you to mediation – own all the decision-making power. While mediations can differ, a mediation does follow a typical path of:
- Introduction and Signing of Mediation Agreement
- Getting Background Information for you
- Determining Interests and Goals
- Setting an Agenda
- Brainstorming Solutions
- Coming to Agreement
- Writing and Signing the Agreement
The unique thing about mediation is that you get to make the decisions rather than leaving the decisions to the Court.
