Mediation is a way to work through a disagreement or conflict between two or more people.

Mediación en Español Mediación ayuda a la gente a resolver problemas entre vecinos y otros. 

The mediation process is facilitated by an impartial mediator who provides a safe setting for both sides of the issue to be expressed. The mediator helps clarify the issues and clear up misunderstandings so the people involved can consider their options for improving the future.

Mediation is a free service provided to individuals and businesses in:

  • Fairview
