What do mediators do before the first mediation session?

You may be asked to fill out forms to gather the following information:

  • ♦    Your name, address and phone number
  • ♦    Where you work
  • ♦    Days and times of day you could attend mediation session(s)
  • ♦    Financial status, such as income, expenses, debts, assets
  • ♦    Names and ages of children, where and with whom they live
  • ♦    Health and other insurance information
  • ♦    Information about the issues you want to cover in mediation

Most mediators will tell you:

  • ♦    About their education and training
  • ♦    About their mediation experience
  • ♦     About any other professional experience they may have
  • ♦    What they charge
  • ♦    Whether they mediate alone or with another mediator

Most mediators will:

  • ♦    Set up a neutral place to mediate
  • ♦    Contact the other person, explain the mediator’s services and ask him/her to participate
  • ♦    Schedule the mediation at a time that works for all of you
