Bankruptcy Mediation


Mediation is a process in which two or more parties meet with a professional mediator to talk about solving a problem. It may be as simple as two neighbors who cannot agree on a land issue. Mediation can be used for any type of conflict. The mediator does not make decisions, but helps the parties find a solution themselves.
