Mediation works well in almost any type of conflict. Below are just a few examples of common mediation topics, split into two basic categories:
Family Mediation includes:
- Parenting plans; including custody, visitation and child support arrangements
Divorce or separation
Workplace or employment cases
Disputes between parents and children
Community Mediation includes:
- Small claims and supreme court cases
- Consumer/merchant disputes
- Landlord-tenant disputes
- Neighbor disputes, including neighborhood or homeowner groups
- Peer/school disputes
- Commercial or contract disputes
- Special Education (IEP)/school disputes
In addition to Mediation services, we offer alternatives such as Arbitration and Facilitation that are more specialized.
Arbitration is a method of dispute resolution where a neutral third party (the arbitrator) is empowered to determine the settlement of the issue. Their decision is final and binding on the parties, and is enforceable in a court of law.
Facilitation is designed for large groups or whole organizations who need to create a plan or resolve complex disputes.
