What is mediation?

Mediation is an informal private process in which an impartial person, a mediator, encourages and facilitates communications between participants to a conflict with a goal to promote resolution, settlement, or understanding.
Mediators do not render a decision regarding the participants dispute but rather works explore issues and generate options which lead to the creation of solutions which will work for all participants.

What are the benefits of mediation?

  • $$$ Mediation is a faster, more economical way to resolve conflicts in private.

  • Participants have the opportunity to resolve their conflicts with resolutions that fit their individual needs rather than being forced into a resolution decided by and Judge.

  • Mediation is a way to focus on putting the past to rest and focus on the future.

  • Preventative. It is way to resolve the conflict before resorting to filing a lawsuit.

  • Reduce time away from work. 

  • Reduce the stress of litigation.

When is mediation appropriate?

Mediation can benefit participants at almost any stages of a conflict.
Before - Mediation can be done as a means to prevent a lawsuit that can, and all too often, is extremely time consuming and very costly to all participants involved.
During - Mediation can be done during a lawsuit by means of a court order to mediate or voluntarily in the beginning of a case for temporary orders, in the middle of litigation to narrow the issues, or near the end of a case before trial.
After - Sometimes it is necessary to mediate after a lawsuit is over to cover matters that were not dealt with during the suit, to cover disputes over language ambiguity in a final court order, or when new matters arise that need to be settled to avoid the need for a modification of a court order.

Why does mediation work?

Mediation is a voluntary process. Therefore, participants who play and active role in reaching their own resolution are far more likely to abide by that resolution than they would be if the resolution is decided by someone else, such as a Judge.

Who can take part in mediation?

Participants can come on their own to mediation or can be referred by a court order to attend mediation. Generally, only the participants themselves and their attorneys participate in a mediation with the mediator. However, other participants may be allowed on a case by case basis depending on the circumstances.

Is it necessary for me to have an attorney?

Participants are not required to have an attorney to mediate a dispute. However, if a party wishes to seek legal advice, having their own attorney is often times helpful for that purpose. A mediator's purpose is not to give legal advice but to encourage and facilitate resolutions between participants.

What should I bring with me to mediation?

The key is to be prepared. Bring any and all information, written agreements, contracts, documents, and records that are relevant to the dispute.**In divorce cases where there is property to be divided, each party should prepare in advance a complete list of all property, including the property value for each item, and state whether the item should be considered community property, or separate property. All information reviewed during mediation will is kept strictly confidential.

What is IDR’s privacy policy?

Confidentiality is of the upmost importance. Our mediators will make every effort to keep matters completely confidential throughout the entire process, whether the mediation is in person or via video conference mediation. IDR does not retain any records shared during the mediation process. Only Mediated Settlement Agreements (MSAs) are kept in the normal course of business.
