What is Mediation?

Mediation can help resolve conflicts in many different areas of life.

  • EMPLOYMENT

    Mediation can help resolve issues for service members protected under the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Right Act. Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve offers mediation for National Guard and reserve service members who encounter conflicts with their civilian employers.

  • DIVORCE

    Going through a divorce can be an emotional and contentious process. Mediation can allow two parties to compromise and allow for a civil end to a marriage. The process is often quicker and cheaper than going to court.

  • REAL ESTATE

    Service members relocate frequently and are often faces with legal disputes related to homeownership and renting. Mediation is a way to resolve those disputes in a timely matter, so service members can focus on their relocation.

  • CHILD CUSTODY

    When parents want to resolve child custody issue, but don’t want to go to court, mediation can provide a solution both parents can agree with. The process is civil and private, and it doesn’t leave the decision up to the courts.

The Family Mediation Program provides mediation for dissolution of marriage, parenting plans, and custody agreements. We also provide mediation services to families with situations including parent/child conflict, grandparent or extended family visitation, care of elder parents, and sibling conflict. Mediation is a way for family members to resolve their disputes in a private confidential setting with the assistance of a neutral third party whose role is to assist the parties in reaching an agreement on disputed items by identifying issues, exploring options, facilitating communication between the parties, and recording the agreements reached.

Frequently Asked Questions

Mediation is a process for resolving disputes in which a neutral third party helps conflicting parties have a conversation to jointly resolve their concerns. It allows people to work things out directly with each other, helping those involved to diffuse emotion, correct misunderstandings, and be satisfied with outcomes because they created them directly. Depending on your particular situation, mediation may be a viable and less costly alternative to litigation.

Additionally, we may be able to send a letter requesting the other party reach out to us to discuss the possibility of mediating.
Mediation is a voluntary process, and CMC has no authority to compel another party to mediate if they do not wish to.
