MEDIATION SERVICES

 

ANYONE IS ELIGIBLE FOR MEDIATION SERVICES.

Mediation is a process that allows disputing parties to meet in a private setting and confidentially work out a solution to their mutual problem. A neutral, trained mediator guides the session by facilitating the conversation to ensure that each party brings their issues and ideas to the table. The playing field is level and balanced; both parties have an equal say in the discussion and the outcome. The parties are the decision-makers, not the mediator.

A settlement is reached only if both parties mutually agree with it-no one will impose a decision. Should the parties resolve their dispute during the mediation session, the mediator can write up the terms of the settlement into a binding, enforceable agreement, and unlike a courtroom, the mediation session is non-threatening, informal and confidential. Not surprisingly, when people are given the opportunity to work out their differences in a creative, constructive manner, the success rate is substantial: more than 80% of mediations end in a workable agreement.

 

EVICTION MEDIATION SERVICES

For eviction mediation, there may be a small fee for the service but, you may be eligible to have the mediation fee paid. Please contact Community Mediation Services at 989.732.1576 or check out their website for additional information at www.mimediation.com.
