Frequently Asked Questions


What will happen at the mediation?

The Mediators and the parties will sit around a table in one of the Magistrate Court’s Mediation Conference Rooms. You and the other party will have the opportunity to talk about what has happened and what is important to you. You will talk about different ways the case might be resolved. The Mediators will ask questions, try to help clarify issues, and try to make sure each party is understood and acknowledged.

If you resolve your case through Mediation, an Agreement will be signed by all parties and will become part of the case file unless the parties want the Agreement to be confidential. The case will not have to proceed to Trial, and a Stipulation of Dismissal will be signed.
