Mediation is a voluntary, confidential and informal conversation. All Parties are free to end mediation at any time. Sometimes Parties end a session and reschedule a follow-on session in order to find more information, think deeper on an issue, or perhaps some other private reason. Parties decide the outcome and the Mediator helps guide the communication process. It isn't court and Parties are encouraged to have their Attorney present to advise them. Windsor is not an Attorney and does not offer evaluations, opinions, or solutions. *Some Attorneys are formally trained in mediation. If an agreement/settlement is reached, the Parties will draft and sign it. Parties mutually agree to adhere to their agreement/settlement. Parties are free to mediate a previously mediated issue as long as all Parties agree to meet again. It is not mandatory. Parties look for collaborative ways to reach sustainable agreements and solutions. Mediators help the conversation and negotiation move forward. Success in mediation may be as simple as learning more about your position and interests while also learning more about the other side.
Session times vary depending on your requirement. Arrange sessions to fit your needs. Options include in-person one hour sessions or block time increments of 2-4-6-8 hours (with breaks). Some concerns are easier and less stressful to work through when sessions have a specific goal. Sessions focus on them and schedule across short periods over several days. We've learned that online sessions tend to flow better when spread short blocks spread across several days. Fee schedules are determined during the planning phase. At any time, Parties are free to pivot to different fee structures for subsequent sessions.
