Why Does The Judge Refer Us To Mediation?
Mediation allows the parties' to keep decisions in their own hands.
Colorado promotes mediation so people can receive professional support in reaching mutual decisions.
The courts are available for parties who cannot reach a mutual agreement.
WHAT IS MEDIATION
Mediation is an alternative to the traditional litigation processes. It is confidential, usually voluntary unless it is ordered by the court, it ensures that the outcome of the decision-making process remains in the hands of the parties. It provides the opportunity for the parties to discuss their issues, clear up misunderstandings, identify separate and mutual interests and find areas of agreement.
The purpose of mediation is to help people resolve or better manage their disputes with one another. It accomplishes this by assisting the parties to reach agreements about what each will do differently in the future. The process is intended to tap the parties wisdom, unlock creativity, bring about hope, loosen deadlocks and promote understanding, cooperation, and joint problem-solving.

ITS PRACTICAL ASPECT
There are many ways to discuss and define mediation; I prefer a practical approach. Mediation gives the parties an opportunity to resolve their differences with a mutual agreement while preserving the critical advantage of self-determination.
During the mediation process, the parties are assisted by a mediator, a neutral party, to facilitate the conversations creating options,
crafting proposals and identifying common ground. The parties maintain their self-determination in decision making and hopefully reaching mutual agreements.
If an agreement is not reached, the case proceeds to a hearing before a judge. For all practical matters, the parties are ceding their decision making and self-determination to the judge. The judge will follow judicial proceedings and give a ruling over the case.
A cordial invitation is extended to take advantage of the benefits of mediation to find options and solutions that help you keep decisions in your hands.
