Northern Community Mediation

Why should I try mediation?

There are eight good reasons to give mediation a chance:

  • You will have the opportunity to explain the situation from your own point of view and to hear the others parties' explanations from their points of view.
  • Unlike the courts where one person must lose, mediation is a "win/win" situation. The goal is to reach an agreement that is satisfactory to everyone.
  • About 80% of all mediations end in an agreement.
  • Mediations can be held to accommodate your schedule.
  • Everything said at mediation is confidential.
  • Unlike litigation, mediation is non-confrontational. In mediation, the parties are working together to find a solution, rather than working against each other.
  • Mediation often serves as a deterrent to future disputes between the parties.
