Mediation is a voluntary process. The mediator facilitates a conversation between the parties helping them clarifying their interests and options. As agreements are reached, they are recorded. Mediators work directly with parties or in concert with other professionals. Mediators work in collaborative law settings as neutral third-party facilitators. Collaborative attorneys sometimes enter the mediation process to provide legal information for their clients in a neutral setting. In addition, collaborative attorneys and their clients may choose to review their agreements within the mediation process. Doing so provides a transparent process whereby all parties hear the same information at the same time and can work together to arrive at agreements which serve the whole family. Bobbie L. Dillon, M.S., is the President of The Mediation Center, Inc., offering conflict resolution services and training to individuals, families, and organizations throughout the Greater Rochester Area and Finger Lakes Region.
