How Does Family Mediation Work?

You can attend voluntary mediation any time before or during a case. A trained Mediator will lead the mediation meeting. Each party voices its opinion as to how to resolve the matter. The role of the Mediator is to help you and the other party reach an agreed-upon resolution without going to court for full litigation. Most family mediation sessions are agreed-upon hours, but usually no longer than five-hour sessions. Mediation can be conducted in person or remotely via phone, email, or video. Having the flexibility to conduct mediation means you can work around work conflicts, illness, and agreed-upon. You can prepare for family mediation with a proposed parenting plan, ideal arrangements, lists of expenses, proof of income, and entries from a parenting journal or calendar showing when you care for your child.

Is Mediation Confidential?

Mediation is confidential. No information you share during mediation is shared with the judge. The mediator only reports the result of the mediation – if it was successful or not. Unless otherwise communicated, all conversations and documents presented during mediation are confidential and privileged under Tennessee mediation law T.C.A. § 36-4-130.
