The mediation process and the role of the mediator

In the process of mediation, the parties and their attorneys meet with a mediator to help resolve some, if not all, of the issues in their case. A mediator is a neutral person who does not make decisions about the case, acting as a go between for the parties to help facilitate a settlement and help the parties come to a resolution.

In Forsyth County and the surrounding area, mediation is a required process for cases involving contested child custody. It can also be a valuable tool to help parties in all types of litigation resolve contested issues.
