In all of our mediations, our responsibility to you is to provide a safe, confidential, and neutral environment within which to resolve differences, and work towards a fair and lasting agreement. Our mediators maintain a neutral role and do not take sides. Mediators do not pass judgment on what is right or wrong, and do not have decision-making authority. The outcome is what both parties can be satisfied with, and agree upon. Mediation limits the costs of resolving disputes, avoids the uncertainty and delay of the adversarial court system, puts you in control of the final agreement, and allows you to emerge from the process with self-respect and dignity.
While at ADR Mediation Center we provide mediation services for a wide range of disputes, our initial focus was the provision of Divorce Mediation services as an alternative to a litigated divorce. We maintain a separate division dedicated to Divorce Mediation, and remain committed to working with couples to mutually settle the asset / liability distribution issues of divorce, and to focus on the development of a parenting plan that meets the needs of all family members.

Mediation, as used in law, is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), is a way of resolving disputes between two or more parties. A third party, the mediator, assists the parties to negotiate their own settlement. Mediation has a structure, timetable and dynamics that "ordinary" negotiation lacks. The process is private and confidential. The presence of a mediator is the key distinguishing feature of the process. There may be no obligation to go to mediation, but ... any settlement agreement signed by the parties to a dispute will be binding on them.
