Mediation sessions are a comfortable yet structured environment for both parties to voice their concerns. It is important for both parties to understand that the process is voluntary. If one of the parties does not feel comfortable with mediation then this may not be the proper avenue to take. It is important to hire a mediator that will be a neutral third party.

The mediators role is to set ground rules for both parties to follow. It is important that both parties understand the rules before the session begins. The ground rules include issues such as refraining from using profanity, shouting, disrespecting others and speaking out of turn.
