Providing All Relevant Case Information


All relevant information pertinent to the issues to be discussed should be brought to the session. Failure to bring the required information may cause adjournment of the 1st session and rescheduling at a time when the information is available.


Settling Disputes


Someone with full authority to settle the dispute must be present at the session. Attorneys of record are welcome at the mediation session, but are not required. No legal or financial advice is given by the mediator or program staff. It is the party's decision as to whether their attorney attends the mediation.

Unless otherwise noted in the agreement, parties unrepresented by counsel during the mediation will have 3 days to have any agreement reviewed and approved by counsel.
