Mediation is a process whereby a neutral and impartial third person acts to encourage and facilitate the resolution of a dispute. It is an informal and non-adversarial process intended to help disputing parties reach a mutually acceptable agreement. In all mediations, you are the decision maker, not the mediator.
The Sumter County Mediation Services Program offers mediation in domestic, dependency, county civil (up to $15,000), and small claim cases. The mediations are conducted by Florida Supreme Court Certified Mediators.
