Mediation is a tremendously helpful and confidential process where a skilled and certified mediator helps parties have difficult discussions and work towards a common ground that brings resolution which meets all parties’ interests. Mediation can be voluntary (a simpler and often less expensive option than taking the case to trial), contractual, or court ordered.


If both parties can agree, they may choose their own mediator to listen to both sides of the case and guide the parties to a fair solution that respects North Carolina laws. If the parties cannot agree on a mediator, a judge may choose one for them. With today's technology, many mediations take place virtually, making this an often easier solution than appearing in court.
