Should I/Can I Mediate my Case?

Typically, only civil cases can be mediated. The kinds of civil cases that are mediated include business disputes, landlord-tenant disputes, small claims disputes, divorces, child custody disputes and contract disputes.

One of the primary reasons to choose mediation over typical litigation is if you are concerned about maintaining an important relationship with the person on the other side.

Mediation is more cooperative and collaborative, so it is a good choice for disputes that involve business partners, co-parents, family members or neighbors.
