HOW TO START MEDIATION?DO I NEED A LAWYER-9099642_s

1.  Confirm your spouse’s or ex partner’s interest in mediation.  Remember, mediation is a voluntary process and both of you have to agree to it.

2.  Both parties have to download the Intake Questionnaire, fill it in, and fax or mail to my office (detailed instructions are on the form).

3.  When I receive both Intake Questionnaires, I will contact both of you to schedule intake meetings.

4.  Each party meets with the mediator individually.  The issues for mediation are canvassed during this meeting, and the parties get to meet the mediator and ask questions.  The Mediation Agreement is signed, and if any preparation is needed during the first session, it is discussed and explained.
