How does mediation work?
The mediator usually meets with each party separately to get background information, to explain the mediation process and to determine if mediation is appropriate. Subsequent sessions are typically joint and focus on setting an agenda, creating options, and making decisions. The mediator then prepares for you a summary of the resolved issues.
