Posted on Apr 15 2012 under Mediation 101, Previous Programs

We all have conflict in our lives, some disputes are more explosive and destructive than others. Maybe it is a long-term conflict with your neighbor over the property line, or a parenting plan has gone awry between you and your ex-spouse, or your business partners don’t like how the business is run or being run down. In each of these potential scenarios, parties are stuck in a cycle of destruction and contribute to the escalation of the dispute. YOU need help. You have heard about mediation and think it might be worth getting help before things get completely out of control. What now? Where do you find a mediator? You don’t want to have to go to court or file a lawsuit. What do you need to know to hire a mediator? How does this work? How much does it cost?

More importantly, it supports the parties making their own decisions on how to solve the problem and move forward.
