Civil / Estates Mediation

Many civil disputes are caused because a relationship has changed in some way. The emotions that fuel family law disputes — anger, betrayal, hurt feelings, fear, guilt — often lie beneath many civil and employment disputes as well.

Court proceedings can get you the financial compensation you deserve, but they rarely provide the chance to address the emotional harm caused by the dispute.

Mediation offers an opportunity for parties in any kind of dispute to negotiate an outcome that is fair, both financially and emotionally, and even the chance to repair an important relationship.

The first step to request a civil mediation is for both parties to separately fill out a Civil/Estates Intake Form. Please download it, fill it in, save it and send it to us at hello@riverdalemediation.com. Please also read the Civil/Estate Agreement to Mediate, which must be signed before the mediation begins.
