Circuit Court Mediation
The Circuit Court Mediation program is a party-pay system. If the court refers the parties to a free mediation orientation session, the parties may select a mediator from a list of eligible circuit court mediators. If the parties then voluntarily choose to proceed with mediation, they work out a compensation arrangement for the mediation services. This is different from district court mediation programs where mediator services may be paid by the Office of the Executive Secretary.
Parties may choose mediators based on criteria that is important to them, such as fees, training, subject matter expertise, background, experience, or recommendation of friends.
