Mediation is a private, voluntary and confidential meeting between you and the person with whom you are having a dispute. A mediator, who has been trained to be neutral and doesn't know either of you, helps you talk to each other so that you can reach an agreement that you both can live with. No one will force you into an agreement. Agreements may be legally binding and enforceable in a court of law.
Mediation is an appropriate alternative to the traditional methods of resolving every day disputes.
