Processes

Mediation

Mediation is a process in which a neutral third party, the mediator, facilitates discussion between parties to help them reach a voluntary agreement resolving their dispute. The mediator does not make decisions for the parties, but helps to craft the terms of an agreement that is agreeable to all parties.

Early Neutral Evaluation

In an early neutral evaluation, the parties submit their dispute to a neutral evaluator who can assess the strengths and weaknesses of the case and offer insight into a likely outcome if the case were to proceed to trial before a judge.  This process allows parties to obtain an opinion about the case which can assist parties and lawyers in identifying the issues, exchanging information, and facilitating resolution.

Parenting Coordination

A parenting coordinator is authorized by agreement of the parties or by court order to assist parents in making decisions regarding their children, parenting and financial issues related to their court order.  A parenting coordinator is often used in high conflict cases to remove the parties from the court process and to develop communication and cooperation between the parents.  Often a parenting coordinator can prevent a case from having to return to court.
