The court utilizes mediation when it is apparent that both parties are interested in negotiating an agreement.  In mediation, a neutral third-party person (mediator) assists the disputing parties to generate options for reaching a mutually acceptable agreement.  The mediator helps define areas of agreement and disagreement, but does not impose a settlement.

If you retain a private mediator, you are responsible directly to that mediator for any cost associated with the mediation.  Any agreements as to fees or costs for private mediation are between the parties and the mediator.
