AFFORDABLE MEDIATION PROGRAM



ABOUT MEDIATION
     Mediation is a voluntary and private settlement process emphasizing informed decision-making and mutually acceptable agreements.
     Mediation provides an alternative to the win-lose approach of the adversarial legal system. It is practical, informed, highly focused on the issues to be resolved, and involves mutual problem-solving.

HOW DOES MEDIATION WORK?
     An impartial mediator helps the parties clarify their disputes, communicate clearly, determine their needs and interests, consider options for settlement, and reach fair agreements. Written agreements are prepared where appropriate or desired.

WHO CAN USE MEDIATION?
     Anyone with the desire to settle disputes reasonably and at less cost can reach agreement in mediation. Mediation is effective even when conflict and anger is high, and communication has broken down.

"The mediation process you have developed at NCMC is a great alternative when dissolving a marriage and in my opinion the only way to go...I feel that your organization provides an invaluable service to our community and my only hope would be that more people will take 'the road less traveled' when divorce is the only solution."—former client
