Testimonials About Mediation PDF Print

Here are some comments made by actual participants in mediation...

"I really enjoyed my mediator. I thought she was very fair and open to understanding our issues. I feel a third party will better our parenting communications, which will benefit our children's well being."

 "The mediator was very good at getting the other party to at least acknowledge the other person's view on various points discussed during mediation."

 "This was a great way of better understanding the situation. "

"This process is very helpful in bringing an understanding to the entire picture, which includes all divorce, child custody, or other legal issues. Thank you."


Our mediators find that participants in mediation consistently make comments such as those listed above. For many people, their attendance at mediation is the first chance to discuss the issues associated with their divorce with a third party present. The mediator helps to keep the discussion focused and sets ground rules that minimize the amount of time spent on re-hashing the problems that led to the divorce, and maximizes the time spent on finding constructive and creative solutions to the next chapters in participants' lives.

Family Mediation Council brochure

In the past FMC had printed out mediation brochures and sold them to our membership for distribution.
