How It Works
The sessions are typically 4 hrs but can be broken down into two 2-hour sessions per day. We find that 4 hour sessions are effective in ensuring that we can take the time to explore options and come up with solutions. While talk is great, we are all about you getting results and we want each day to be productive.
Your mediation process can settle in one session or it can take as many sessions as you and your partner need, provided you are making progress toward a negotiated settlement.
The mediation process for each case works differently and varies depending on the dynamics of the relationship. Typically, we start out with joint sessions and I meet with each party separately from time to time in separate confidential virtual rooms, if a party requests it, or if it will be a more effective way to move toward the resolution of an issue. These private meetings are called caucusing.
In some cases, the entire mediation would be conducted with the parties in separate confidential virtual rooms and the mediator will shuttle between both rooms, helping to facilitate a settlement. This is usually referred to as shuttle mediation.
The plan and agenda for your mediation will be developed after you and your partner have completed initial intake meetings with the mediator.
