While Southern Mediation Services predominately work with children and their families, we also provide other mediation services – sometimes known as Alternative Dispute Resolution – in areas where mediation is a realistic option to resolve problems, obstacles or other impediments. Alternative Dispute Resolution Mediation can be the ‘vehicle’ that prevents issues escalating to a point where a Tribunal or Court becomes involved. The mediation can be planned with the parties involved to be as flexible and informal as the situation dictates.
Alternative Dispute Resolution can be used and realistically implemented into most situations where conflict or disputes have risen. The mediators at Southern Mediation Services will be happy to discuss this type of mediation with you before any decisions are made to proceed.
