At the beginning of the first session, I will collect basic information. For example, if it's a child custody case, I will ask for the names of those residing with you, your work schedule, the child's school, what the current child custody arrangements are, and if there are existing court orders (please bring copies of existing Orders with you). Then I would explain about confidentiality, how and when I meet separately, answer your questions about the process, and costs. Finally, I ask what your priorities are for the meeting and we address them individually.
It is vital for you to know:
If there is an open court case, as part of the information relevant to your mediation, it's helpful to ask your attorney what you are entitled to under the law, and the strengths and weaknesses of your positions.
