What is Mediation?
Mediation is a voluntary or court ordered approach to resolving disputes using the assistance of an impartial third party. In mediation, the disputing parties control the outcome by deciding how to resolve the issues at hand.  
Disputing parties can share differing perspectives, voice their needs and interest, and reach a greater understanding of each other’s views in a safe, supportive environment. Because parties create their own agreements, mediation helps preserve interests and maintain relationships.       
With the exception of any type of abuse (child, elder, animal, etc.), neglect of any type or any criminal act, N.D.R.Ct 8.8 § (d) govern the confidentiality of all mediation communications. All communications, unless discovered from an independent source outside of mediation, are held confidential and any information may not be disclosed or discussed to anyone outside of mediation including the judge or judges to whom the case may be assigned to.      
Mediation is an alternative to litigation, avoidance, destructive confrontation, or violence. Parties are encouraged to seek independent legal counsel to understand their rights. Mediators do not provide legal advice or legal services.

Preparing for Mediation       
You should bring any documents, statements, invoices, or photographs  that will help the other person and the mediator understand all of your concerns and the issues involved in the dispute. Bring all relevant evidence just as though you were preparing to present it to the judge in a formal hearing. All evidence is shared with everyone involved in the claim. It is best to have all of your information together in a folder or a binder. 
When an Agreement is Reached       
If the parties reach an agreement on how to resolve their dispute, the mediator will help to put the agreement in writing. This reduces the possibility of misunderstandings about the agreement. The consequences of non-compliance with the agreement will be fully written as a part of the agreement. If the mediation agreement is fulfilled, the parties do not need to attend a review hearing, and the judge will dismiss the case.         
Mediation has been shown to provide effective resolutions to disputes, and can be faster, less expensive, and more satisfying to the parties than litigation. The final agreement is not imposed upon the disputants; instead the disputants design it according to their own interests.       
“The courts of this country should not be the places where resolution of disputes begins. They should be the places where the disputes end after alternative methods of resolving disputes have been considered and tried.
Justice Sandra Day O’Connor 
"The notion that ordinary people want black-robed judges,well-dressed lawyers and fine courtrooms as settings to resolve their issues is not correct. People with problems, like people with pain, want relief, and they want it as quickly and inexpensively as possible..."
Justice Warren E. Burger
