No. All parties to the mediation have to be in the right frame of mind in order for mediation to work. Everyone has to have the willingness to at least try to reach an agreement and be open-minded to the process. Mediation is also inappropriate in relationships involving abuse, fear or violence. Not all cases will be accepted for mediation. I do not believe in wasting people’s time or money and while mediation will not be successful all of the time, before your case is accepted by O’Connor Cadiz law, the case will be confidentially screened to let you know if your case may be a good candidate for mediation.
