Mediation is a process by which both parties to an action attempt to negotiate and settle their case outside of court in order to reach an agreement regarding contested issues. The process typically involves use of a neutral, third-party mediator who facilitates the settlement negotiations. In Collier County Unified Family Court, mediation is required before proceeding to trial.
There are many benefits to mediation, including the opportunity to control the terms of a settlement agreement and avoid the expenses of litigation. Additionally, everything discussed during mediation is confidential, with some limited exceptions.
